Serbs claim victory in Kosovo as Albanian Prime Minister resigns

SERBIA CLAIMED victory over ethnic Albanian separatists in Kosovo yesterday and said its forces would return to barracks, but Albanian sources warned that the Serbs' offensive was not over. The announcement followed Serb attacks on villages south of Pristina, the Kosovo capital, which saw homes burning and civilians fleeing under artillery bombardments.

Meanwhile, Albania faces the prospect of renewed turmoil last night following the sudden resignation of the Prime Minister, Fatos Nano. Mr Nano had not been able to build a new cabinet in the second reshuffle of his 14-month-old five-party government. His resignation comes after politically-inspired violence in Tirana last week.
