New York Times

The New York Times (Wed 16 June) leads with coverage of Kosovo. The paper reports that NATO troops allowed foreign journalists to visit Djakovica and the surrounding areas and they confirmed refugee accounts of mass killings and other atrocities. The paper says that the Serbian Orthodox Church called on Slobodan Milosevic to resign as Milosevic has thrown himself into an unusually energetic campaign to rally a disillusioned and depressed public. On the withdrawal of Serb troops, the paper says that the Yugoslav military largely complied with NATO's demands to leave much of Kosovo by midnight on Tuesday.
