Soldier Dies in Kosovo




KOSOVSKA MITROVICA, Yugoslavia -- A Russian soldier serving with the KFOR peacekeeping force in Kosovo died of his wounds after being shot in an ethnic Albanian town, the French army said Thursday.


"The Russian soldier died of internal bleeding overnight," said Major Philippe Maurin, a spokesman for the French KFOR forces stationed in the north of the province.


The soldier, whose name was withheld pending notification of his family, was shot Tuesday in the overwhelmingly Albanian town of Srbica.
