Letter: Hope for Kosovo
Wednesday 26 May 1999
I phoned the Air Ministry to complain. Why was it so low? "It is absolutely essential for training purposes, sir," was the reply.

Were my children and so many others terrified for no good purpose, or will we eventually see the training which terrified them used in order that the soldiers who are committing the acts of genocide are killed rather than civilians.
