The spoils of Kosovo's war
Kosovo Albanians have been looting Serbian houses
By the BBC's Matt Frei in Grace
Minutes later, the neighbours are waiting to cross the road to the now abandoned houses.
With the last Serb gone, the race for the loot is on. From everywhere they came, to collect their spoils of war.
Next door, a man had helped himself to just about everything he could carry, although he managed to drop the looted washing powder.
One former refugee said he had been hiding out with others in one of three houses up in the mountains with little children. He described the grenades falling.
Many Kosovo Albanians said they were merely taking what had once belonged to them before the Serbs had stolen it.
A K-For unit of French Legionnaires watched the scenes at Grace unfold.
"We're not going to intervene," the sergeant said.
"I'm on my own here. I'm more concerned about the housing being set on fire."
As the Legionnaires looked on, burning began on the other side of the village. The reprisals have already started.
Some houses were burnt by Kosovo Albanian refugees only minutes after Serbs fled this house.
