Sir: Year after year, we constantly witness atrocities involving Muslims. What is the West, and more importantly the UN, doing about it? How many more massacres need to be committed before action is taken?

This will not be the last tragedy in Eastern Europe. Muslims have long been the target of oppression and systematic murder. Recently, the target has been focused in Kosovo (where the Muslims have been labelled "ethnic Albanians"' by the media). Here there is evidence of widespread genocide, including the torture of women, children and babies.

Clinton (with Blair at his side) has given his backing for Nato air strikes. That is laughable. Slobodan Milosevic and his government need to be rounded up, and then the people of Kosovo should be given independence.

After this is over, the world will ask itself how it allowed this to happen - just as they did when the Bosnians were the victims.
