Nation marks NATO bombing

March 25, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Air raid sirens sounded across Serbia to mark the 10th anniversary of the NATO bombing that ended Belgrade's rule in Kosovo.

Officials denounced the raids, which NATO carried out to force then-President Slobodan Milosevic to halt his onslaught against separatists in the former Serbian province.

Classes in Serbia's schools opened with a minute of silence for the victims.

The government held a special session dedicated to the anniversary.
