Syndicate: news from UK

Opposition politicians here are starting to openly criticise the policy of
NATO air bombardment. Alex Salmond, leader of the Scottish National Party
has said the raids are a mistake which have accelerated the suffering of
Kosovars. The Blair government has condemned this criticism, saying NATO
has not increased suffering and that Kosovar Albanians support the bombing.
But there is at least now a public debate about the issue.

Yesterday, around 20,000 demonstrators from Albanian and Yugoslav camps
clashed in Whitehall, central London.
