On this St. Vitus Day holiday that for centuries has been a flash point in Serbian history, the pretender to the crown, the Serbian Orthodox Church and anti-Communist parties join forces today to try to turn Serbia from its current destructive course. Crown Prince Alexander, in exile all his life, made a triumphal return to Belgrade on Saturday, lending his regal cachet to a movement to oust strongman President Slobodan Milosevic and promising that as monarch he could be "a uniting force."

Tens of thousands of ethnic Albanians staged Kosovo's biggest protest in a decade Monday to condemn a brutal Serbian police assault that left as many as 77 people dead in the separatist-minded province. Relatives of many Albanians killed in the sweep refused to claim the bodies, demanding autopsies by foreign pathologists. Riot police with submachine guns sat in buses on side streets as about 50,000 Albanians demonstrated in Pristina, the provincial capital.

Sarajevo slipped back into its deadly rhythm of fierce nighttime shelling and uneasy calm by day, while tensions mounted in Belgrade on Saturday after a police threat to break up a weeklong demonstration against Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic. Artillery fire on the Bosnia-Herzegovina capital was described as the heaviest since U.N.

Local elections won by opponents of Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic were officially recognized Tuesday by the Serbian parliament, virtually securing opposition rule in Belgrade and 13 other disputed cities. "Get ready for a huge party," said Zarko Korac, an opposition member of parliament. "There will soon be a couple hundred thousand people celebrating in the streets of Belgrade."

An estimated 20,000 anti-Communist demonstrators rallied Sunday in downtown Belgrade to demand new elections in Serbia, the largest of Yugoslavia's six republics. Police and some military units were placed on alert in the capital, but no clashes were reported. Many in the crowd chanted slogans calling for the ouster of Serbia's ruling Socialist Party--the renamed Communist Party--which overwhelmingly won the republic's multi-party elections last December.

Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic, declaring that Serbia will not become a "proving ground for terrorism," again deployed riot police Monday to club and corral anti-government demonstrators who returned to the streets despite bloody skirmishes the night before. Thousands of students and others were allowed to march briefly, then were blocked by police who chased and beat small groups of people hurling rocks and insults.

Long-smoldering animosity between supporters of Serbia's ruling Socialist Party and the anti-communist opposition could explode into violence here next Monday. An anti-government rally called by the Serbian Renewal Movement has been billed as a commemoration of last year's March 9 rioting, in which two young pro-democracy demonstrators were killed by police. Communist President Slobodan Milosevic was nearly ousted from power for brutalizing fellow Serbs after that incident.

More than 30,000 Serbs rallied on Monday to mourn those killed in the Yugoslav war and to denounce Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic for steering the republic to ruin and isolation. Leaders of the growing anti-Communist opposition called for a general strike to oust Milosevic from power and accused him of transforming Serbia into a huge, volatile armed camp. They demanded new elections and many chanted support for restoration of the Serbian monarchy.

A U.N. relief convoy trying to reach a stranded Muslim town abandoned a bid to find an alternative route Friday after being blocked by angry Bosnian Serbs for the third day. The convoy, which was stopped from reaching Srebrenica by a crowd of Bosnian Serb women and children at Skelani, turned back to Ljubovija, where it was blocked by a similar protest Wednesday and Thursday.

Serbian opposition forces have called for a massive anti-Communist demonstration Sunday--which should provide the first real test of public resolve to tough out U.N. sanctions. The trade ban, oil embargo and severed transportation links imposed May 30 have begun to inconvenience Serbs, causing some to question the policies of nationalist President Slobodan Milosevic. The international community considers Milosevic chiefly responsible for a year of warfare that has killed 16,000.

Still another of unraveling Yugoslavia's six republics acted to distance itself from the fraying Balkan federation Sunday, while new fighting in Croatia defied efforts by the European Community to stop ethnic bloodshed there from mushrooming into full-scale civil war. In peaceful contrast to scenes of violence in the north, 1.3 million voters turned out in the southern republic of Macedonia to pass judgment in a referendum that would open the way to a break with the old Yugoslavia.
