Minnesota Public Radio investigates the incineration of the remains of thousands of ethnic Albanians by Serbian forces under the command of Slobodan Milosevic during the 1999 war in Kosovo. The secret operation was part of a highly-organized effort by Serbia's leadership to conceal evidence of possible war crimes from international investigators. Documentation shows that the operation was carried out by an elite unit of the Serbian security service.
This report provides graphic evidence of a massacre of ethnic Albanians in the Kosovar town of Izbica at the hands of the Serbs during the height of the NATO bombing campaign.
With a fragile peace in place, most Americans would undoubtedly like to forget the eight years of war, atrocities and suffering that have been visited upon the Balkans. But the man most responsible for this modern tragedy, Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosevic, remain in power, unchastened by the West and emboldened by his own survival. In "The Looting of Yugoslavia," U.S. News & World Report reveals how Milosevic has secretly turned his sights on his own country, raiding its banks and businesses to sustain his despotic rule and enrich his family and courtiers. The story details how more than a dozen of Milosevic's top ministers not only run the government, but also control the nation's largest, state-owned companies, funneling money form these businesses into their own private firms and their own pockets.
Given Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic's prominence in the peace process, U.S. News decided the time was right to chronicle in one place, as clearly and specificly as possible, the evidence of the crimes that have been committed during the course of the Balkan conflict and to assess responsibility for them.
