Phone Service in Kosovo

Sarah Chayes reports from Pristina on efforts to restore telephone service in Kosovo, 10 months after the conflict ended there. The UN is taking responsibility for the task but is finding it hard to deal with the Yugoslav regime in Belgrade. Kosovo is a province of Yugoslavia, and Belgrade controls the country code, 381. Phone service has been restored to seven of Kosovo's biggest towns.
