NO SERBS INVOLVED IN DROWNING: UNMIK
PRISTINA -- Wednesday UNMIK spokesman Derek Chappell said tonight that the survivor of yesterdays Ibar River drowning has told his parents that he and three friends entered the river alone and were immediately caught up in the heavy current.
The boy managed to reach the opposite bank of the river, but his three companions were swept away.
The incident happened at about 4.30 p.m. and police began a search of the river about an hour and a half later. Two bodies have been found so far.
Todays violent incidents around Kosovo were sparked after claims that the boys had been chased into the river by Serbs with a dog.
Chappell told media in Pristina tonight that this was definitely not true according to the account of the surviving boy.
Greetings from Belgrade
Prayers for those those poor Serbs trapped by Muslim thugs and butchers. The burning of the St. Archangel Monastery is horrible and indicative of the Albanians' true intentions.
