New York Times

The New York Times has extensive coverage of Kosovo. The paper says the last of some 40,000 Serbian forces left Kosovo on Sunday a few hours ahead of NATO's deadline for withdrawal, in effect ending Yugoslavia's control over a province at the center of Serbia's cultural and historical lore. The paper says Western leaders were reassured by Boris Yeltsin's appearance at the G8 Summit that dialogue with Moscow was possible in the aftermath of the Kosovo war.

ABORTION - The Republican Party has softened its stand on abortion, recognizing that a more tolerant position on probably the most divisive issue in American politics is crucial to its hopes of reclaiming the White House.

POLAND - Poland and the Czech Republic are pushing hard for membership in the European Union. But in Poland, leaders now find that a substantial part of the population is balking.

IMPLANTS - An independent panel convened by the Institute of Medicine at Congress's request has concluded that silicone breast implants do not cause any major diseases.

SOAPS DWINDLE - The final episode of "Another World" will air on Friday. The demise of one of television's most venerable soap operas comes as audiences are plummeting, sending the industry into a sense of gloom.

MEDICAL RECORDS - Legislation to protect the privacy of patients' medical records is dying under pressure from insurance companies, health care businesses, law-enforcement officials who want to preserve their access to patient information.
