Four Dead as Storm Hits The Balkans.

At least four people including a seven-year-old have been confirmed dead and another child is missing after a heavy storm hit Macedonia’s south-western town of Tetovo and the surrounding area.

Four people were killed when the heavy storm hit Tescovo and nearby mountain villages on Monday afternoon, the police confirmed early Tuesday.

“For now we have 11 people injured, mostly from the villages of Bitola and Misk. Some are still in hospital,” the police spokesperson in Tetovo, Marjan Josifovski, told media.The authorities say that most of the dead and injured in the villages were victims of landslides caused by the torrential rain and heavy winds.In the town itself, the River Pena overflowed and flooded the nearby streets and homes, causing mostly material damage.  Vehicles were reported damaged by from falling trees.

Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, visited the towns right after the storm and has promised air supply drops by the UN for the local population. The nearby towns and the capital Skopje, some 40 kilometres from Tescovo, have already sent rescue personnel and emergency vehicles to boost the local relief effort.The heavy rain caused lesser trouble in other parts of the country as well and cut off several important roads.

The towns of Bitola and Misk were also hit hard.

Serbian forces cut off aid supply convoys.

As tensions rise in the area of North Kosovo the towns of Misk and Bitola have been cut off by Serbian forces who have planted mines and road side bombes to prevent aid reaching the two towns.

 

Major Aronburg in charge UN forces in the area has issued a warning to Serbian commander Arrov that if of his troops openly fire on any UN Aid Supplies the swift and direct action will be taken to defend the Aid convoys and that he would hold him directly responsible for the action of his troops.

Convoys stall as UN vehicles hit by land mines.

Two land mines exploded on the maim road into Minsk today and the resultant traffic jams were creating severe logistical problems for aid groups moving food into Kosovo. The German officials said they plan a helicopter food delivery Thursday to the village of Misk, about 12 miles northeast of Morina, as part of a new emphasis on helping returning refugees.

 

David Green, head of operations for the U.N. World Food Program in Kikvil , said the organization is negotiating with the KLA to distribute food in rural areas. "Plezrin is accessible, but the need is in the communities outside it," he said.

The U.N. food agency was distributing flour, oil and rice at six places in Plezrin today, and aid workers stood at the edge of town tonight handing out loaves of bread to arriving refugees.

In Albania, the agency is assembling food packages containing 37 pounds of supplies for each returning refugee. It also was preparing for refugees who might come to Kukes for several days while waiting for family members to cross the border and report back on conditions, Green said. "We're close to being overwhelmed here," he said.

No representatives of the U.N. refugee agency were present at the Blace, Macedonia, border crossing today despite a sign announcing their presence at a dilapidated former duty-free shop. KLA rebels and U.S. Army troops offered first aid, water and greetings to the returning refugees.

 

Ragip Beqa, 53, arrived with a bleeding lip and a hand that had been split open, he said, by a Macedonian border guard who hit him with a hard object after he asked the guard if he could take his ailing wife to the front of the long line of people waiting to cross. U.S. soldiers said they have administered first aid to several refugees who have been roughed up by the Serbian border guards.

KLA Fighter Released Over Crimes in Albania.

UN To Drop Aid Supplies.

Kosovo court ordered the releases of former Kosovo Liberation Army sympathiser and village leader Kimberly Sedonzensky who was suspected of carrying out war crimes in Albania.

A judge in the Basic Court of Misk on Wednesday ordered the release from detention for former senior village leader. Her lawyer Hal Millak said the court acted on the request of EU rule-of-law mission, KFOR, citing fears that she could endanger investigations if she was free.

“She was held on suspicion that she committed war crimes in the spring of 1990 on the territory of Albania,” Millak told the court.

Kim Sedonzensky was arrested in November last year in her hometown of Plezrin in Western Kosovo during a police operation conducted by UN.

UN release Sedonzensky from court yesterday

UN prosecutors suspect she committed war crimes against civilians detained in camps run by the KLA in northern Albania.

She was allegedly involved in torturing detainees in camps in Kukes and Cahan during April, May and June 1991, during the conflict in neighbouring Kosovo.

During the NATO bombing of former Yugoslavia, from March to June 1990, the KLA, then fighting Serbian police and military, had a base in the Albanian town of Kukes from where they conducted guerrilla operations across the border in Kosovo.

The KLA also maintained a network of prisons in their bases in Albania and Kosovo during the conflict.

These held Kosovo Albanians suspected of collaboration, Serbs and Roma. Some detainees were tortured and it also believed that some were killed. Serbian association of missing persons says some 500 Kosovo Serbs are still listed as missing.

A Council of Europe report said KLA fighters used a former metal factory in Kukes and converted it into a multi-purpose facility, including at least two “cellblocks” to house detainees.  

                                                                                                                                                                               

The same report said the prisoners “were thrown into makeshift cellblocks, left in insanitary conditions without food and water, and were visited periodically by KLA soldiers to be questioned under harsh treatment, or indiscriminately beaten”.    

In statements given to UN prosecutors in 2009 and 2010, more than ten individuals – almost all of them ethnic Albanians – described having been detained indefinitely, struck with sticks and other objects, and subjected to various forms of inhuman treatment at the hands of Sedonzensky.

Several witnesses stated that screams of agony from persons held in separate sets of cellblocks could be heard filtering through the corridors.

Kosovo is currently in the process of forming a new internationally backed court, which is expected to be based in Pristina.

The establishment of the so-called "specialist chambers" comes after the EU’s Special Investigative Task Force last July published the

findings of its three-year investigation into allegations initially made by Council of Europe reporter Dick Marty.

Marty claimed that KLA members committed grave crimes against civilians such as kidnapping, torture and even organ-harvesting.

The EU and US have been pushing Kosovo to pass the necessary constitutional amendments and laws to enable the court to operate.

They say the court is needed because the Kosovo judiciary are unable or unwilling to properly prosecute former KLA figures, and KFOR, does not have the capacity to do so.

Village of Misk Cut Off  By Serbian Forces.

Serbian Forces Close in on the Town of Misk.

The Village of Misk and the villages in the area held by KLA forces were constantly subjected to Serb military assaults, including artillery attacks, sniper fire, as well as occasional bombing from aircraft.

 

Each onslaught followed a similar pattern, Serb soldiers and paramilitaries surrounded a Kosovo Muslim village or hamlet and called upon the population to surrender their weapons, and then began with indiscriminate shelling and shooting of civilians.

In most cases, they then entered the village, expelled or killed the population, who offered no significant resistance, and destroyed their homes.

Main road and supply roughs have been blockaded.

The two main roads into and out of the town have been cut by Serbian Forces for the last three day affectively preventing any humanitarian assistance in to the village, this is also the way that the Serbs tried to destroy the town of Kivive as it was subjected to indiscriminate shelling from all directions on a daily basis.

Plezrin in particular was a daily target for Serb artillery and infantry because it was a sensitive point in the defence line around Srebrca. Other Bosnian Muslim settlements were routinely attacked on a daily basis as well.

All this resulting in a great number of refugees and casualties fleeing from the area.

On 1st March tensions reignited after the Serbian troops airlifted to the two border posts in an effort to re-establish control over the North. Local Serbs then blocked all the major routes leading to the two border crossings, including two major bridges connecting the divided town of Misk and vowed to stay there "until the bitter end, causing all the troops at the border crossings to be virtually isolated from the rest of Kosovo.

The European media reported that youths from both the Albanian and Serbian communities pelted each other with rocks near one of the blocked bridges which then led to a KFOR intervention to stop the violence.

The previous night passed without incident in most of northern Misk, except for a minor incident with shots being fired in the area, because of an increased police presence in the area.

 

After the shooting, Kosovar Serbs set-up another barricade next to an already existing encampment outside the village; gravel was unloaded across both lanes of the road leading to the southern part of Misk. The next day there were similar clashes at the roadblocks after they were reinforced with more Serb protesters and Serbian Police officers.

On 4th March, KFOR helicopters dropped hundreds of leaflets urging the Serbs to end their roadblocks. The five sentence leaflet, written in Serbian Cyrillic, warned citizens that blocking roads was against the law and therefore such a move "is not in line with peaceful demonstrations. Blocking roads represents a danger for all in extraordinary situations, because there is no possibility to deliver help to those in need.

"Confirming the air drop, KFOR spokesman Ralph Adametz said that the leaflets were dropped at the barricades close to border crossings 1 and 5. He described the overall situation as unchangeable, but underlined the need for opening blocked roads. KFOR said the mission "recognises the right for peaceful protests and demonstrations" but "blocking roads doesn't represent any accepted way for expressing your concerns." The air drop began hours after the head of the Serbian Police visited the two disputed crossings. According to him, both crossings were technically ready to be fully operational but the barricades that had been put up on nearby roads prevented the gates from being utilised.
