Serbs are still enraged today over NATO’s bombing of a Belgrade hospital that killed four people and wounded dozens more. The missile hit the hospital’s neurology clinic and injured medical staff and patients, including two women who were struck by glass as they were giving birth. At least 70 pregnant women were transferred to another hospital after the blast. NATO said yesterday that one of its missiles missed a military target by 500 yards, but has been reluctant to acknowledge it struck the hospital.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright stifled speculation today about a pause in NATO bombings, saying the alliance was not considering a halt to the air campaign. As the attacks continued last night, the latest reports say that NATO missiles damaged the Swiss, Spanish, Norwegian, Libyan and Israeli embassies in Belgrade.
