Korisa

NATO Spokesman Peter Daniel:

"... this area of south-western Kosovo has been subject to steady Serb military activity since March of this year.

There was heavy Serb activity in the area during the specific time around the attack as well. I'll leave the specific details of the strike to General Jertz, but let me just make a few points. I know there is a great deal of speculation about how many, and why, Kosovar Albanians were at that location at the time of the attack. We are not there on the ground, and you are not there on the ground. Serb media has a history of misrepresentation, to say the least. So that while we cannot vouch for the completeness, nor the credibility of the television footage that has been broadcast, NATO deeply regrets any accidental civilian casualties that may have resulted from this attack."

NATO Major General Walter Jertz:

"First of all, for the first question, as I already said in my briefing, it was a legitimate target. Since late April we knew there were command posts, military pieces in that area and they have been continuously used. ... It was a military target which had been used since the beginning of the conflict over there and we have all sources used to identify this target in order to make sure that this target was still a valid target when it was attacked."
