FIVE Serbian policemen were wounded in a battle with Albanian separatists who attacked the border village of Ponosevac in south-west Kosovo yesterday. The clash was monitored from across the nearby border in neighbouring Albania by observers from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Intermittent mortar and heavy machine-gun fire continued for a third straight day in the vicinity of Vojnik, inside the traditional rebel stronghold of Drenica, 25 miles west of Pristina. Three ethnic Albanians were killed and three wounded in Vojnik on Saturday.
