EU Prosecutors Probe 'Worst Kosovo War Massacre'


“The EU rule-of-law mission, EULEX, announced that it had identified around 20 people who could be charged with committing war crimes in the Kosovo municipality of Gjakove/Djakovica on April 27 and 28, 1999, when hundreds of ethnic Albanians are believed to have been killed by Serbian forces.
EULEX said that the investigation would cover the villages of Meje/Meja, Orize/Oriza and other places in the Reka/Caragoj valley.
“The massacre in and around Meje/Meja is allegedly the largest mass killing that took place during the 1999 conflict in Kosovo,” EULEX said in a statement on Wednesday.
Most of the victims were exhumed from mass graves in Batajnica in Serbia.”
