Fleeing in fear
Coming to terms with losing a member of the family
Paul Welsh reports from makeshift refugee accommodation in Macedonia
More than 100,000 are estimated to have been forced from their homes since the bombing began.
Many of those who have escaped from Kosovo are now camped inside an old factory in Macedonia, and are beginning to tell their stories.
One refugee, Udin Zayer Boyopia, fled with four children. Her fifth, a three-year-old daughter, has died, the house where she was staying burned to the ground.
Udin Zayer's husband says he feels powerless, unable to find out anything about his child's fate.
He said Serb forces attacked one evening, and took up intimidating positions in and around it the next day, when the families prepared to leave as ordered.
He said townspeople had been fired on as they fled, and he had been unable to reach or help his own daughter.
The extended family are now living in a small room in the factory, slowly coming to terms with their ordeal.
There is a lot of grief still to be unburdened.
