GUESTS: TBA Massive numbers of refugees are fleeing Kosovo as a result of what NATO claims is an ethnic cleansing campaign by Serbian forces. By some estimates, over one hundred thousand Kosovars have fled into Albania, Macedonia, and Montenegro since the NATO air strikes began, but NATO officials bristle at the suggestion that the air strikes precipitated the refugee situation. Meanwhile, UN and EU officials are scrambling to avoid a humanitarian disaster in an area already overwhelmed by refugee problems. Join guest host Lynn Neary and a panel of experts for a look at the refugee situation in the Balkans.
