160 Serbs reportedly found in Kosovo grave;
Western press is silent

[Emperor's Clothes]

Dear friends,
I saw a rumor about this discovery earlier today. As it was based on a shortwave radio intercept, I didn't want to give it credence and I've been hoping against hope that it was inaccurate. Although I don't consider this more recent report to be definitive corroboration, I thought it worth passing along. I'm absolutely sickened but not surprised by this report. I doubt we'll see anything on it in the western press.

UNMIK sends invitations to families of disappeared Serbs
160 bodies found in Pristina

PRISTINA - In the Pristina suburb of Dragodan 160 bodies have been found which are suspected to be victims of Albanian terrorists during the past year, since the deployment of UNMIK and KFOR, Blic has learned from members of families of kidnapped and missing Serbs and Romanies who received invitations to identify the discovered bodies. Vesna Mulici identified the body of her husband, Ramo Mulici, whose body was among those exhumed at Dragodan.

"I saw many identity cards with the names of Serbs and photographs while I was attempting to identify the belongings of my husband," she told Blic. At UNMIK headquarters no one wished to either confirm or deny this information but a invitation was repeated for relatives and friends of the missing and kidnapped to come to Pristina and help the Committee for Missing and Disappeared Persons to identify 159 more bodies found at Dragodan.Strong KFOR forces until recently secured this gravesite and prevented uncontrolled entry to the Dragodan cemetery.
