Balkans: January 10, 2002


Albanian police authorities said that they have reacquired around 180,000 of the 549,000 weapons stolen during the 1997 upheavals. During 1997 several Albanian arsenals were sacked. The 549,000 weapons figure may actually be a conservative estimate of the number lost in 1997. No one knows for sure how many weapons were stashed in the Hoxha-era peoples war arsenals.
