NATO yesterday authorized air strikes on Serbian targets, giving Yugoslav President Slobadan Milosevic four days to avoid them by ending what the U.S. calls his seven-month offensive against ethnic Albanians in Kosovo. The NATO authorization clears the way for air strikes using U.S. cruise missiles, to be followed by a campaign of aerial bombing.

Guest:

  • Tony Benn, a Labor Party Member of Parliament in Britain, who has just written a letter to several former heads of state appealing for intervention to prevent air strikes.
