Host Bob Edwards talks with NPR's Sylvia Poggioli about the latest development on the situation in Kosovo. NATO has authorized airstrikes against Serb targets in an effort to force Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic to end an offensive against ethnic Albanians in Kosovo. Milosevic agreed to withdraw his forces from the southern province and begin peace negotiations. In return, NATO had agreed to hold off on airstrikes for four days so the international inspectors could verify that Milosevic has met U.N. demands.
