Kosovo Mitrovica NPR's Anne Garrels reports from Mitrovica that nearly a year and a half after NATO forces entered Kosovo, this city remains a hotbed of ethnic tensions. Albanians and Serbs are locked in a stand-off over apartments, and jobs in the region's rusting heavy industry. But the United Nations administrator of the city, Bill Nash, is beginning to get the two sides to cooperate. Nash says the fall of Slobodan Milosevic in Belgrade should make it easier for moderate Serbs to deal with the ethnic Albanian community.
