'Driven from our homes'
A human tide is flowing out of Kosovo
Serb forces are expelling Kosovo Albanians from their homes at gunpoint, according to refugees arriving at the province's borders.
But Serbs say Nato air strikes are to blame for the mass exodus of refugees.
Marko Gasic, of the Serbian Information Centre in London, said: "All anti-Yugoslavian stories will be accepted in the West.
"The truth is that Nato bombing has converted Pristina into a hell-hole and Kosovo into a charnel-house."
Serbs 'lining the route'
He said: "Serb forces came to our apartment, basically drove us out of our apartment, took all our money and then they went inside our apartment. We had to flee."
He described Pristina as "more or less deserted", but said the refugees were from across Kosovo, not just Pristina.
"All these people have been driven from their homes", he said.
Mr Bajrakatari said that the people who had travelled on foot were in a "terrible condition".
He said: "It's raining and there is a lack of food. One old lady died at the border and she had to be buried there. Another lady gave birth at the border."
But other refugees crossing the Macedonian border told similar stories.
One man said two people had died and three babies were born during a six-hour train ride to escape from Kosovo.
Another refugee said: "They came, took away our money, valuables, identification papers and put us on the train."
"It is better to die with a gun at home than to be here like this."
And Arden, a 17-year-old boy, said: "We are young. We can last here for days. But there are too many children and old people here.
"Unless the Red Cross does something, they are going to die."
Refugees arriving at the Albanian border also described acts of brutality and harassment from Serbian soldiers and paramilitary forces.
Nakije Kryeziu, a teacher from Djakovica, said she had seen Serbian soldiers shouting the name of a young Albanian man before entering his house.
"They shot him in front of his parents," she said.
