Kosovo Starts Building Homes for War Refugees

PRISTINA (Kosovo), August 8 (SeeNews) - The U.N.-administered province of Kosovo said on Monday it started building homes for 36 families that have lived in camps since the 1999 war that convulsed the province.

Authorities hope to soon provide housing for another 19 families as well, Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi said in a statement.

The initiative, co-financed by the Kosovo government and the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), is a step toward the implementation of the U.N.-required standards on security, human and property rights, as well as the return of war refugees and displaced people, after the 1999 war.
