MALA KRUSA, Kosovo – The remains of 46 ethnic Albanian civilians killed 15 years ago by Serb forces have been buried in western Kosovo.
One funeral took place Wednesday in the village of Mala Krusa, where 112 boys and men were killed when Serb forces rounded them up, sprayed them with bullets and then set them on fire. The slayings came in revenge for NATO's bombing of Serbia.
Another 27 civilian victims were buried in the town of Suva Reka after being unearthed from a mass grave in Serbia where they were taken in an attempt to cover up the killings.
The two incidents were among the worst atrocities during Kosovo's separatist war that left some 10,000 dead, most of them ethnic Albanians.
NATO's 78-day bombing campaign ended the conflict in 1999.
