t After a week-long lull, Kosovo refugees resumed pouring across the Albanian border yesterday afternoon. Within three hours, almost 1,000 had crossed, with a similar number waiting in no-man's land.

t The aid agency CARE International says there are fresh hopes for the release of three Australian aid workers held in Serbia, after appeals by the South African President, Nelson Mandela.

t The Kosovo Liberation Army reported that it killed 13 Serb soldiers and a Russian in fighting along the Kosovo-Albanian border. The KLA also ambushed a group of 20 Serb soldiers on the road linking Pristina with the rest of Serbia.

t More than 300 Albanian Americans have flown to training camps in Albania to join the KLA. KLA representatives say they have all the new recruits they can handle.
