This day in history for September 15, 1995 - President Clinton announces pending peace agreement on Bosnia and the NATO ceasefire in Sarajevo. Jimmy Carter readies a mission to Cuba to discuss lifting sanctions. Senate vote on Welfare reform. Charges of tainting evidence in the OJ Simpson trial and Hurricane Marilyn churns around the Caribbean.

This September 15th in 1995 was preoccupied with the former Yugoslavia and hammering out a peace agreement between warring factions. President Clinton announced a tentative ceasefire in NATO bombing in Sarajevo - the announcement came in the middle of this newscast.

In other news. Jimmy Carter was readying a peace mission (of sorts) to Cuba to try and work something out with the Castro government. On the domestic front - The Senate was getting ready to vote on Welfare reform, but still in the midst of much haggling between Republicans and Democrats. The OJ Simpson Trial was weathering charges of slanting testimony in favor of the Prosecution and Hurricane Marilyn was churning its way through the Caribbean.

Miss much not being here - perhaps. September 15, 1995 by way of the CBS World News Roundup (and cut-in by President Clinton mid-way in).
