A LEADING Serb official in Kosovo warned international powers to pressure ethnic Albanians to give up their goal of independence, or face the threat of a wider Balkan war. Veljko Odalovic, the deputy director of the Kosovo Serb government, said that such pressure "would solve many of the problems" in Serbia's ethnic Albanian-dominated Kosovo province. The warning came amid reports that Albanian militants killed two more people and were battling Serbian police near Kosovo's border with Albania for the third consecutive day.
