AT THE scene of the attack on a refugee convoy in Kosovo last week, Robert Fisk collected pieces of debris bearing serial numbers which could help to identify the attacker.

At yesterday's Nato briefing in Brussels, military spokesman General Giuseppe Marani was asked: "In ... instances reported in the Independent, the fragments of ordnance bear serial numbers which are intact ... Can you confirm that Nato's accounting procedures allow a particular piece of ordnance to be matched to a particular mission and if not, how far can you narrow it down?"

Gen Marani replied: "We can narrow down ... to which batch. But as to the relevancy of knowing which batch, debris can be carried around."
