Hundreds of ethnic Albanians watched early Monday as a mob dragged a Serbian man and two Serbian women from their car, beat all three and fatally shot the man during a night of festivities celebrating Kosovo's biggest holiday. NATO peacekeepers sped to the scene in downtown Pristina shortly after midnight, finding that the car had been overturned and set on fire. United Nations police found the women lying on the ground, screaming for help.

This is one place where Serbs have to be very careful not to wind up on the wrong side of the road. About 200 Serbs live in this village in the buffer zone where southern Serbia comes face to face with the separatist province of Kosovo, and their rutted dirt road has suddenly become a dangerous borderline. By the stroke of a map maker's pencil, several of the Serbs' houses are in Kosovo, under U.N. authority.

Unknown attackers sabotaged a transmitter belonging to Serbia's biggest opposition television channel Sunday, its director said. He blamed the crime on authorities. In a separate announcement, an independent radio station said it had had problems with its signal since the afternoon. Dragan Kojadinovic, director of the independent television channel Studio B, said the sabotage has prevented people outside Belgrade--the Yugoslav and Serbian capital--from viewing the station's programs.

The U.N. General Assembly expelled the Serbian-dominated Yugoslav federation Tuesday, brushing aside an impassioned plea from Prime Minister Milan Panic that his government deserved membership "at least as well as the countries and governments that many of you represent." The 127 to 6 vote with 26 members abstaining marked the first time in U.N. history that a country was voted out, although South Africa has been suspended because of its apartheid policies.

As Yugoslavia founders in the turbulent seas of ethnic unrest, it would seem to make little difference which republic is at the helm when the ship of state goes under. But this week's transfer of the federal presidency from Serbia to rival Croatia has traumatized Serbian militants and raised fears that further violence may be instigated to prevent an orderly rotation.

With Serbian occupiers vowing to foil U.N. plans to end the war in what used to be Yugoslavia, Croats contend that the only way to secure their territory is by combatting force with force. Croatian officials, fighters and civilians believe that diplomatic recognition of their nation implies a right to deter an aggression that has already put one-third of their country under Serbian control.

Serbia's state-controlled media Thursday accused Muslims and Croats of provoking violence in neighboring Bosnia-Herzegovina, ominously setting the stage for what could be a full-scale assault on the breakaway republic. The Serbian-led federal army has mobilized large numbers of reservists over the last two days, according to the unofficial Studio B broadcast network and sources in Belgrade who said friends and relatives were being called up.

A cold-eyed soldier calmly uses a handgun to shoot one man after another. Each falls, dead, hands still tied, onto a pile of bodies. Another soldier spray-paints walls with the name of this Bosnian Serb killer: "Zivko." Some of the moviegoers watching these scenes applaud. They applaud, too, at the opening of "Welcome to Sarajevo," when dazed refugees stream from the Croatian city of Vukovar as it is bombed to smithereens by Serbian forces.

THE CONTESTED COUNTRY: Yugoslav Unity and Communist Revolution, 1919-1953 by Aleksa Djilas (Harvard: $34.95; 248 pp.) . With myriad "autonomous regions," few clear historical villains or heroes and no obvious ethnic differences between its two main factions, the Croats and Serbs, Yugoslavia certainly tries the patience of those attempting to understand the roots of its current civil unrest.
