Peacekeepers Tighten Controls On Macedonian Border

The KFOR international peacekeeping force slapped tighter controls on the Kosovo-Macedonian border. The measures were taken following an incident on Saturday, where Albanian extremists ambushed Macedonian security forces personnel, killing 8 servicemen and wounding 7. The border is being controlled both on the ground and by helicopter gunships in the air. Following the tragic incident, Macedonia cut the traffic at one checkpoint on the Kosovo border, with only pedestrians allowed through. The country's Defense Ministry sources say security measures have been stepped up in Macedonia's frontier zone.
