NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports on a demonstration today by tens of thousand of people in the Serbian province of Kosovo. The demonstrators were mostly ethnic albanian students, trade unionists and members of political parties. They want international intervention to stop a recurrence of last week's police crackdown that killed at least 80 people. They also want independence from Serbia. Ethnic Albanians comprise 90-percent of the population of Kosovo.
