RATIONALE: remove misc.news.bosnia

The last approved message was in May 1998.

Since the 1990s, development of the Internet and World Wide Web have opened up
direct access to news sources in Bosnia and southeastern Europe in general so
that a newsgroup is no longer the most efficient means of news distribution.  In
addition, it may be impossible to have a moderator who is considered neutral,
and there may be copyright issues with regard to distribution of news articles
published in other media.


HISTORY: 

The newsgroup misc.news.bosnia was created in September 1994 to "provide prompt
& timely information on Bosnia"
