    DJAKOVICA -- An 82-year-old woman - one of only five remaining Serbs in the town of Djakovica in Kosovo - has died, it has been reported.

The four elderly women who still remain there live under 24-hour protection of the Kosovo police (KPS). One of them, 64-year-old Vasiljka...

    PRISTINA, KOSOVO The trial of seven Kosovars accused of participating in an international organ trafficking ring opened here Tuesday. The suspects are accused of luring victims from Turkey and former Communist countries to Pristina to sell their kidneys with false promises of payments of up to 15,000, or nearly $20,000. The recipients, according to the indictment, paid between 80,000 and 100,000 for the organs. The case has threatened to tarnish the image of the new country as it struggles to establish international credibility three years after declaring independence, and as it seeks integration into the European Union. But the...

Its the very first time in 12 years that the pressure against the Serbs in the north has been so strong from...

As summarized by retired U.S. diplomat Gerard Gallucci, who formerly served in Kosovo: On September 27, the NATO force in Kosovo (KFOR) lost completely its guise as UN peacekeepers and became a repressive, lawless military occupation force.
