NATO blamed

The week's news at a glance.

Kosovo

U.N. police and NATO peacekeepers have done practically nothing to stop looting and rioting in Kosovo, Human Rights Watch charged this week. During fierce riots in March, the watchdog group said, French, German, and Italian NATO peacekeepers stayed in their bases and watched as Albanian mobs burned Serbs’ homes nearby. The international community, the group said, has been in “absolute denial about its own failures.” NATO spokesman Horst Pieper said Human Rights Watch had only “an armchair perspective” and that on the ground, troops had worked hard to protect minorities.
