In the News: Kosovo Continues to Bury War Victims

We just missed this yesterday on the way to the airport to pick up my mom for a visit.  As I’ve posted before, every few months more Albanian bodies are “discovered” in Serbia and returned to Kosova.  Naturally the rest of the world has long since forgotten the war in Kosova…there have been too many other global tragedies since then.  The people here are reminded several times a year, however, as the remains of their loved-ones are returned in boxes.

Relatives attend the burial of 30 Kosovo Albanians October 21, 2005, who were killed during the 1998-99 war between Serb forces and separatist guerrillas and buried in mass graves 350 kilometres north in Belgrade. The funeral took place in Kosovo Polje, just outside Kosovo's capital Pristina after the remains were returned from Serbia. REUTERS/Hazir Reka
