Balkans: November 10, 1999


More "anti-American" bombs went off in Athens. This time a Suzuki motorcycle showroom was the target. The showroom went unscathed but four cars parked in front of the building were damaged. The anarchist "Anti-State Action" group claimed responsibility.

Macedonia temporarily blocked shipment of humanitarian aid to Kosovo across its borders. The aid blockade was an "act of protest" to call attention to the lack of international aid and Western investment in Macedonia.
