BRITISH POLICE have uncovered the biggest mass grave they have so far found in Kosovo. They found 50 bodies buried in a rubbish dump in Ljubidza, the Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, said yesterday.

"We are ... exhuming and documenting those bodies," Mr Cook said after a meeting in London with Hashim Thaci, a Kosovo Liberation Army commander. The discovery brings the number of bodies found by British forces and police in Kosovo to more than 200 in the past two months.

In Ljubidza, Abedin Ademi, a farmer, who stressed he was relaying hearsay information, said: "The Serbs dug a hole and put Albanians in it ... and dropped in a grenade ... They buried those who were killed and those who were injured even if they were still alive ... everybody knows that is how it happened."
