Bus bombed in Kosovo
The explosion blew half the bus off the bridge
At least 24 people have been killed in a Nato attack on a bridge in Kosovo just as it was being crossed by a civilian bus.
An AFP journalist, who saw the wreckage of the bus an hour after it was struck by Nato, says he counted 24 bodies. Serb media say the death toll could be around 40.
A Nato communique said the bridge at Luzane, 20km (12 miles) north of Pristina was a key target lying on a north-south supply route used by Serb forces.
A survivor of the attack interviewed in hospital said he had "heard the planes, the blast and then everything started to burn."
BBC Correspondent Jacky Rowland said the bus seemed to have been on a regular passenger service from Nis to Pristina.
The survivor said the bus was filled with civilians, mostly children and old people, and there were a couple of soldiers on board.
There is no mention of a second attack in the Nato statement.
Five die in Montenegro
In Montenegro, an attack on two villages close to the Kosovo border left five people dead - including two children.
Montenegro's Deputy Prime Minister, Dragisa Burzan, said the government strongly protested against the action, and said that Nato needed to make a distinction between Serbia and Montenegro.
Montenegro is Serbia's smaller partner in the Yugoslav federation, and its government has distanced itself from the federal government of President Slobodan Milosevic.
Saturday's death toll in Kosovo and Montenegro brings to about 200, according to Serb sources, the number of civilians who have died in Nato attacks since the bombardment began in March.
