UK warns top Serbs
Serb leaders: Wanted men
The UK Government has threatened key Serbian leaders controlling forces in Kosovo with prosecution for war crimes.
"It will not be a defence to say: `I was following orders'," Mr Cook warned.
"We know what is happening, we do not believe that you, the field commanders, do not know what is happening and if you know, you have a responsibility to stop it."
Those listed in the government briefings were:
British Chief of Defence Staff General Sir Charles Guthrie said: "These are the men on whose shoulders lies the responsibility for policing Serbia.
"Their job is to enforce the law, not to act outside it. We will be watching these individuals, and many others.
"If they commit war crimes they will be brought to justice," he said.
