Serbs shell Albanian border
The bombs fell near a major refugee crossing
By Peter Biles in Kukes
Serbian shells were fired over the border near the main crossing point used by refugees fleeing Kosovo.
Throughout the day Serbian shells could be seen landing inside Albania very close to the Morina checkpoint on the main road between the Kosovo town of Prizren and the Albanian town of Kukes.
Occasional exchanges of fire were heard along a stretch of the border.
A journalist from Chile who was at the Morina border crossing was seriously wounded during the crossfire and had to be flown to Tirana for emergency medical treatment.
Albanian military reinforcement
Amid the increasing tension, the Albanian army has stepped up its presence in the area.
So far though the Albanians have not become involved in the conflict.
Nato planes, however, have been continuing to bomb Serbian positions just inside Kosovo.
Refugees continue to arrive
In the midst of this more refugees have been on the move.
Scores of men arrived in Albania who had been released by the Serbs from detention in the now notorious prison near Mitrovica.
More than 1,000 of these men entered Albania last weekend.
On Thursday whole families of men, women and children arrived from Prizren.
Many of them said that as they fled the Serbs had been burning buildings in the city.
