Ethnic cleansing of Serbs in Pristina, March 17-18
The first three photos in the upper row show the damaged block of
apartments known as YU building in which some 100 Serbs lived since 1999.
Once a city of 40.000 Serbs Pristina is now ethnically cleansed city. Kosovo
Albanian mob rampaged through the Serb flats looting them and setting them
on fire. Many Serb cars were destroyed too. The building was unprotected.
The lower row photos show the burned church of St. Nicholas in Pristina.
The church was built in the 19th century and possessed a valuable Altar
screen with dozens of old icons in wood-carved frames. The photo 06.jpg
shows the parish home which was looted and set on fire. Fr. Miroslav and a
few Serb families who found refuge in the basement of the house were
rescued by UNMIK police in the last moment, while the entire church archive
disappeared in flames. Several remaining Serb homes around the church were
either looted or set on fire. Old tombs of Pristina Serbs and priests were
opened and their bones scattered around the little cemetery.
