This is viewer supported news

As NATO continues to bomb Yugoslavia and debates the use of ground troops, a British organization has sued Prime Minister Tony Blair, Foreign Secretary Robin Cook and Defense Secretary George Robertson for serious violations of international humanitarian law in the bombing attacks. The suit, submitted to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, specifically focuses on NATO’s shift from attacking military targets to attacking civilian infrastructure and objects, including power stations and communication links such as roads, tunnels, bridges and railway lines.

Guest:

  • Glenn Rangwala, from the Movement for the Advancement of International Criminal Law, the organization that filed the suit. Speaking from Cambridge, England.
