The Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees has issued guidelines for the temporary, humane evacuation of Kosovo refugees in Albania or Macedonia to a third country. They include: * Evacuation is on a voluntary basis only. * Every effort should be made to keep families together, with particular care taken to include elderly and vulnerable family members. * Evacuees must be medically fit to travel. If any family member is not fit to travel, families should not be split up.
