On July 25, ...

... 1978, just before midnight, Louise Brown, the 1st "test-tube baby," was born in Manchester, England. By the time that she celebrated her 21st birthday, "300,000 women worldwide had conceived through IVF," or in vitro fertilization, a reproductive technology said to have a 17% success rate.
... 1993, minutes after a U.N.-brokered ceasefire was to have gone into effect, Bosnian Serb troops fired shells in Sarajevo, at the United Nations' base there. Armed conflict would continue until conclusion of the Dayton Accords 2 years later.
