ALBANIAN FOOD CONVOY SHELLED BY SERBS; 3 KILLED

Serb police let an ethnic Albanian food convoy pass through their Kosovo checkpoint and then shelled it, killing three people, a charity worker charged Tuesday.

The Mother Teresa humanitarian organization said the three were killed Monday near Malisevo, a former rebel stronghold in central Kosovo that Serb forces overran last month.

After the convoy of seven tractors passed, the Serbs opened fire, a spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said, quoting survivor Mustafe Krasniqi.

A shell that landed on one of the tractors killed two aid workers instantly and mortally wounded a third, Fernando del Mundo, the spokesman, told the Associated Press.
