Kosovo - Holbrooke

Noah speaks with NPR's Sylvia Poggioli about the negotiations today in Belgrade between US envoy Richard Holbrooke and Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic. Holbrooke again told Milosevic that he faces punishing NATO airstrikes if he does *not* halt the current offensive in Kosovo province and accept the international community's peace plan. Before the meeting, Holbrooke warned that it is up to Yugoslavia "to stop this tragedy." Holbrooke and Milosevic will meet again Tuesday morning.
