Ethnic violence flared anew on Saturday, and state radio reported one person killed two days after at least 15 people died in the worst fighting between Serbs and Croats since World War II.

News of the latest unrest came as the federal presidency began meeting on ways to ease tensions left by the latest round of bloodletting between Serbs and Croats.Past meetings by the presidency, made up of representatives from the fragmented Balkan nation's six republics and two provinces, have come up with no lasting solutions.

A 27-year-old man, Mihaly Nagy, was killed on a barricade near Vukovar, Radio Belgrade said, without specifying the circumstances of his death or which side he belonged to.
