  Reports from Kosovo
  More stories and evidence of killing and torture is emerging
  from Kosovo.  The Washington Post had a long piece on Wednesday
  about what happened in cities around Kosovo.  The Boston Globe
  has a story today on a baker in Pec who kept a diary.

  Letters from Kosovo
  Finnegan Hamill's reports on his email from Adona (a name used to
  protect her identity) were some of the first to give a human 
  perspective on what was happening in Kosovo.  He got in touch with 
  her Thursday for the first time in almost a month and filed an
  update that aired today on NPR's Morning Edition.  It and his 
  previous stories are on the web.  
  Adona is a member of a peace group called the Postpessimists. Paul
  Watson wrote about the group back in April.  Hamill and others are 
  raising money to help bring Adona and other members of the 
  Postpessimists to the United States to study.

  Reports from Serbia
  Since the bombing stopped, many news organizations have withdrawn
  their reporters from Belgrade at a time of critical importance
  for the future of Serbia and the region.  But some stories
  are still being filed.  Also, the Christian Science Monitor
  reports on Serbs who fled to other countries during the war.

  Media & the War
  A FAIR analysis of how the New York Times reported on the war.  
  Seth Ackerman talks about the coverage on Counterspin.  Reporters 
  Sans Frontieres has issued a report on coverage of the war and also 
  issued a report on repression of independent media in Yugoslavia.  
  ANEM, the Association of Independent Electronic Media in 
  Yugoslavia, has issued a statement on more recent repression. It
  is on the independent Free B92 website.  The original B92 website 
  is now under Yugoslav government control and has been redesigned.  
  Veton Surroi, the publisher of the Kosovar Albanian daily Koha 
  Ditore, is alive.
