MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) _ An estimated 1,000 Serbs staged a peaceful demonstration outside the United States consulate today, police said.

The Serbs were protesting possible American military intervention in the Bosnian war.

″In these extremely sensitive times, when peaceful negotiations in Bosnia ought to be pursued, when there is an opportunity for all sides to take a path to peaceful solution, the United States continues to lobby, pressure and threaten its own allies to a military engagement,″ Stephen Nedeljkovic, a spokesman for the Serbian National Council in the state of Victoria, told the crowd.

There is a large community of migrants from the Balkan region in Australia, particularly in Melbourne and Sydney.
