Serbs shell Albanian homes

GOVERNMENT FORCES shelled and burned Albanian homes yesterday in what appeared to be a campaign to drive ethnic Albanian civilians from part of Kosovo which had been under rebel control.

In neighbouring Albania, the state-run ATA news agency said eight Albanians had been killed by Serb shelling of villages in the Drenica area west of the provincial capital Pristina. The figure could not be verified. Serb sources confirmed the fighting but blamed the Kosovo Liberation Army for starting it.
