Western envoys said Thursday that Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic still has not complied with demands for ending the crisis in Kosovo and that continuing violence threatens the peace process. In Belgrade, the Yugoslav government repeated claims that it has withdrawn all the special troops it sent to suppress ethnic Albanian separatists in Kosovo. Such a withdrawal is a key condition of a recent U.S.-brokered agreement to achieve lasting peace in the province. A senior U.S.

On the first full day in office Sunday for Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica, the tide seemed to be turning in his favor even among Serbs in this divided Kosovo city, who had mostly been fervent supporters of Slobodan Milosevic. "Based on how Mr. Kostunica has started acting, more and more people are believing in him, and believing that life will get better," said Dragan Bozovic, 48, a bus company employee who lives in the northern, Serb-dominated part of this city.

The commander of ethnic Albanian guerrillas ranged against Serbian forces in northern Kosovo said Monday that he would observe a truce restored by international monitors, but he refused to move his troops. "I want to make it clear that the accord was agreed with the observers of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe [OSCE], and not with the Serbs," the commander, using the nom de guerre Remi, said at his headquarters, a two-story house in the village of Lapastica.

The threat of NATO airstrikes on Yugoslavia subsided Tuesday as most Serbian security forces withdrew from the besieged province of Kosovo, but Serbian villagers kept their guns and grenades primed to defend the land they hold sacred. North Atlantic Treaty Organization ambassadors meeting in Brussels did keep up the pressure on Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, reserving the right to launch an attack if he backtracks on a pact agreed to two weeks ago to bring peace to the province.

Acting Secretary of State Lawrence S. Eagleburger warned Saturday that Serbian repression of the Muslim majority in the province of Kosovo is likely to touch off a broad Balkans war that could draw international forces, with U.S. support, into the conflict. Eagleburger said that Serbian efforts to carry out "ethnic cleansing" in Kosovo of Albanian Muslims--who make up 90% of the province's population--would be "qualitatively different" from the Serbian massacres in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Although an October cease-fire ended the cruelest attacks on Kosovo's civilians, ethnic Albanian guerrillas and Serbian police have turned their guns on each other in a hit-and-run killing campaign in the separatist province. In the six weeks since most Serbian security forces withdrew from Kosovo to avoid NATO airstrikes, police have killed at least six guerrilla commanders in ambushes, according to the rebel Kosovo Liberation Army and human rights activists.

As Serbs sang nationalist songs and cheered on their side of this divided Kosovo city, NATO troops battled a surging crowd of about 70,000 ethnic Albanians with tear gas Monday to prevent a potential blood bath. Ethnic Albanian protesters had marched about 25 miles from Pristina, the provincial capital, to press demands for an end to the division of Kosovska Mitrovica, which they see as part of an attempt to partition Kosovo, a province of Serbia, the dominant Yugoslav republic.

A large explosion damaged a Serbian Orthodox church in the center of Pristina early today, a NATO spokesman said. The blast was heard throughout Kosovo's capital, rattling buildings, setting off car alarms and dogs barking, and sending a large cloud of smoke and dust into the air. Capt. Stefan Eder, a NATO spokesman, said there were no initial indications of any casualties. "There are structural damages," he said. But Eder said officials did not know what caused the blast or who was involved.
