NATO reportedly bombs another bus; 10 killed
BELGRADE (Reuters) - A NATO jet bombed another bus in Kosovo today killing at least 10 people, the second time a bus has been hit in three days, the Serb media centre in Pristina reported.

The media centre, quoting provincial police sources, said the incident occurred at 1:15 p.m on the road leading from Pec to the neighbouring republic of Montenegro. The report could not be independently confirmed.

The media centre said the bus heading from Pec to Rozaje, a town in Montenegro, and was hit near the village of Savine Vode, 12 kilometres west of Pec.

The media centre said another 10 people on the bus had also been wounded.

No other details were immediately available but western journalists were being escorted to the spot.
