An American soldier serving with the international peacekeeping force in Kosovo was charged Sunday with sexually assaulting and killing an 11-year-old ethnic Albanian girl, the U.S. military announced. Staff Sgt. Frank J. Ronghi is accused of murder and indecent acts with a child, Col. Ellis Golson told reporters. It is the first time a peacekeeper from any country has been accused of such serious crimes since the 50,000-strong NATO-led peacekeeping force entered the province June 12.

A U.S. soldier charged with raping and murdering an 11-year-old ethnic Albanian girl will face a second hearing next week in Germany, the U.S. military said Thursday. The hearing, similar to a grand jury under U.S. criminal law, will determine whether there is enough evidence to court-martial Staff Sgt. Frank J. Ronghi, who could face the death penalty if convicted. It will take place Wednesday at an Army base in Vilseck, Germany, according to a statement from the U.S.

Last week's massacre of 14 Serbian farmers as they harvested wheat made headlines around the world and drew angry condemnations from leaders attempting to keep the peace in postwar Kosovo. "The world did not intervene to make Kosovo safe for revenge and intolerance," proclaimed Bernard Kouchner, the chief United Nations representative here. But one need look no further than what serves as the province's daily police log to see that cases of apparent revenge are rampant.

The 9-month-old attempt to force "ethnic cleansing" on the population of Bosnia-Herzegovina has produced waves of shocking images. First, the photographs of skeletal Muslim men behind barbed wire in Serbian-held camps and the ruined, beseiged city of Sarajevo, where the onset of winter has made the battle even more deadly. And then reports on the fate of women and children, who compose three-quarters of the estimated 2.5 million people who have been forced from their homes in the conflict.

More than 70 women, most dressed in funereal black, marched through Westwood on Monday in solidarity with rape victims in Bosnia-Herzegovina, calling on the U.S. government and the international community to prosecute the rape of Bosnian women as a war crime. Following a mock coffin draped with a red banner that read "20,000 Women Raped," members of the Women's Coalition Against Ethnic Cleansing and the Women's Action Coalition staged the observance on International Women's Day.
