Pristina, 16 Oct. (AKI) - Members of the international police in Kosovo arrested on Tuesday an ethnic Albanian suspected of killing 15 Serbs in Serbia’s breakaway ethnic Albanian majority province, local media reported.

Local radio said police surrounded the village of Veliki Alas, south of province’s capital Pristina, with tens of armored vehicles early in the morning and arrested Melzum Bitici.

Kosovo police spokesman Veton Elsani confirmed that an ethnic Albanian, suspected of war crimes, was arrested but gave no details.

Bitici is suspected of gunning down 14 Serbs in the village of Staro Gracko on July 23, 1999, while they were harvesting wheat. He’s also suspected of having in June 1999 killed a Serb woman, Milena Stojanovic, in his native village , prompting all Serbs to flee Veliki Alas.

Police have complained they were unable to solve the crimes because of constant intimidation of potential witnesses.

Kosovo was put under United Nations control after NATO airstrikes drove Serbian forces out of the province in June 1999 amid gross human rights violations and a mass exodus of ethnic Albanians.

Over 200,000 Serbs have fled the province since then and close to 3,000 have been killed or listed as missing, according to the International Red Cross.

Belgrade opposes independence for Kosovo - viewed by Serbs as the birthplace of their state - where ethnic Albanians outnumber Serbs by 17 to one.

UN sponsored talks on the province's future status have so far been deadlocked.

These are the lovely “ethnic Albanians” — MUSLIMS, that Clinton and Wesley Clark went to war against Christian Serbs to effect the theft of Kosovo from Serbia as another Muslim foothold in Europe...

The Clinton administration “justified” this war to stop an ongoing GENOCIDE and end the slaughter of 100’s of thousands of “ethnic Albanians” (Muslims)....

To date — the “Genocide” on the order claimed has NEVER been proved..
No mass graves to support the false claims have been discovered...

The Left is always talking about lies leading us to war, well THAT was a case where they were RIGHT...
