Walker: 'No doubt over Racak'
There are conflicting accounts of what happened at Racak
The head of the international monitors in Kosovo has told the BBC he has "absolutely no doubt" that Serbs were behind the massacre of more than 40 ethnic Albanians in the village of Racak.
He told the BBC's Breakfast With Frost programme: "All the evidence that you looked at on the ground showed those people had died where they fell."
He said the victims "were all obviously not soldiers - there was a woman and child among them.
"I talked to some of the villagers who had so recently experienced this horror and everything just came together. There has been no contradictory evidence since the event.
"A lot of people have been examining it - journalists, other people from my team, other people from outside - and to date there is absolutely nothing that contradicts what I said about it.
"I have absolutely no doubt that what I said is accurate. Absolutely accurate."
'Uncertainty' over new massacre
Mr Walker accompanied the UK Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, as he delivered the six-nation Contact Group demands to Serbian and Albanian leaders on Saturday.
He said he believed that Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic would agree to attend talks.
Mr Milosevic was "personable" and "a skilled manipulator of words and deeds", he said.
"He can be charming, at the same time he can also be very tough in negotiations. He always goes to the last moment before he decides which way to jump."
