Belgrade commemorates Orahovac victims

A remembrance service for those killed when the Kosovo Liberation Army, KLA, occupied the town of Orahovac in Kosovo in 1998 was held in Belgrade on Wednesday.

The families of the victims and human rights activists laid flowers on the graves and at the monument called “Unknown”, dedicated to the victims who could not be identified because they were burned.

In 1998, between July 11 and July 28, the KLA attacked and occupied the town of Orahovac and its surrounding villages – Retimlje, Opterusa, Zociste and Velika Hoca- in western Kosovo.

During the occupation 47 people were killed, while over a hundred Serbs and Roma were kidnapped.
