PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro, May 14 (AFP) -
The UN mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) said Saturday that its investigators have found a grave in central Kosovo with multiple human remains.
"Among the multiple remains excavated so far are identified two completed bodies. The grave is located near the hospital in Malisevo municipality in central Kosovo," UNMIK spokeswoman Marcie Poole told AFP.
Malisevo region was exposed to heavy fighting between ethnic Albanian guerrilla and Serbian security forces in 1998.
"Preliminary findings indicate a presumption that two bodies are of Serbs who went missing in connection with the events in 1998", Poole said.
In April, UN investigators found 21 bodies of Serbs in a grave located in a cave in central Kosovo. The cave and its surroundings were allegedly used to secretly dispose of remains of Serbs who went missing during the conflict.
Kosovo is a southern Serbian province that has been administered by the UN since a 1999 NATO-led bombing campaign forced Serbian troops to end a crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatists and pull out.
The total number of missing people from the 1998-99 war is 3,192: 2,460 ethnic Albanians, 529 Serbs and 203 of other ethnicities.
Kosovo and Serbian officials have recently begun a dialogue on the fate of people listed as missing from the conflict.
