New Mass Grave Cited in Serbia

Associated Press

The Serbian government said Saturday that authorities have discovered another mass grave with 50 to 60 bodies buried in a cover-up of war crimes linked to former President Slobodan Milosevic.

The government's Internet site quoted a police official, Capt. Dragan Karleusa, as saying that the bodies, apparently Kosovo Albanians, surfaced in April 1999 at a hydropower lake at Perucac, about 90 miles southwest of Belgrade, the capital, and were later buried nearby. Authorities discovered the mass grave sometime later, he said. Kosovo is a province of Serbia, Yugoslavia's dominant republic.
