An unarmed peace monitor was shot and wounded Friday as renewed fighting spread in Kosovo, and NATO's commander warned that the separatist province appears to be just weeks away from a return to all-out war. In another attack about 16 miles south of Kosovo's capital, Pristina, Yugoslav army tanks were seen firing from the hills at villages near Stimlje. At least 15 guerrillas died in the fierce fighting, Serbian authorities claimed.

Further dampening prospects for a diplomatic solution to the Kosovo crisis, ethnic Albanians blamed Serbian police for another fatal shooting Wednesday even as visiting U.S. diplomats pressed for an end to the violence. Relatives of 46-year-old Qerim Muriqi say he died of a chest wound after being shot by Serbian police who fired on a crowd at a peaceful demonstration in Pec, 30 miles west of Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, a province of Serbia.

As Fari Bici, a 20-year-old soldier in the Kosovo Liberation Army, prepared Friday to go out and mark Kosovo's first Freedom Day, he told his younger brother: "This is the night I have been waiting for all my life." Before the night was finished, however, Bici was far from celebrating. Instead, he lay sprawled on the pavement, dead--along with a companion--from NATO bullets.
