NATO aircraft and missiles yesterday blasted targets in Yugoslavia for a second night, directing much of their fire on Kosovo, where fighting raged between Serbs and ethnic Albanians.

Guests:

  • Chris Hellman, Senior Analyst, Center for Defense Information, an independent, non-profit research organization that monitors military planning and policy.

  • Sara Flounders, International Action Center. She is helping to coordinate protests against the Kosovo bombings in 10 cities this weekend.
