Balkans: September 28, 1999


The Danube River Commission announced that the Danube River near Belgrade will remain closed to shipping for three or four more months. The commission is based in Budapest and consists of members from the 11 countries that share the waterway. The biggest clean up problem remains bridges destroyed during the Kosovo War.

Macedonia allowed 450 Kosovo Gypsies to stay in the country. The Gypsies had been living at a refugee camp in Macedonia. At the same time the Macedonian government said that after September 28 it will accept no more refugees from Kosovo.
