Papers react to Kosovo deal
Yesterday's events in the Kosovo crisis are summed up by a simple one-word headline in The Mirror - "Peace".
According to the The Daily Telegraph, the deal agreed by President Milosevic amounts to Yugoslavia's surrender and the end of its attempt to hold on to Kosovo by force.
The Times believes a Serb withdrawal from the province could begin "within hours".
The Sun claims that British troops will lead triumphant Nato forces into Kosovo, with the Royal Engineers in the vanguard. Their task, the paper says, will be to defuse booby traps set by the Serbs in bridges and mountain tunnels.
The Guardian and The Express fear a new refugee crisis as thousands of Serbs in southern Kosovo flee northwards to escape the wrath of returning Albanians bent on revenge.
As voters go to the polls to elect a European Parliament, The Independent is predicting that the turnout will be one of the lowest on record.
Man or woman, young or old, the paper says the real victors in the election will be that increasingly popular political force - the Can't Be Bothered Party.
The Sun and The Telegraph are among a number of papers to print a message of repentance from the former cabinet minister, Jonathan Aitken, who was jailed two days ago for perjury.
In an article written last August for the Catholic magazine, the Tablet, Aitken confesses to being a man of "unclean lips" who has brought eternal shame on his family.
The Express reports that the disgraced former minister is lining up a £1m deal to write a book about his downfall.
But the paper points out that the money is likely to go straight to The Guardian and Granada Television, who are still owed nearly £2.5m in legal costs arising from his failed libel action.
