Hague Tribunal Officials Question Kosovo Albanian Politician


Officials of The Hague war crimes tribunal have questioned a prominent Kosovo politician about his role as a leader of ethnic Albanian guerrilla forces during the conflict in the Serbian province

Officials say Ramush Haradinaj spent about 90 minutes with investigators who questioned him in Pristina at the headquarters of the United Nations administration.

No details of the questioning have been released.

Mr. Haradinaj was a top leader of the ethnic Albanian Kosovo Liberation Army during the conflict of the late 1990s. He later moved into local politics, founding the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, a party that came in third in last month's Kosovo assembly elections.

Serbian authorities have accused him of responsibility for numerous murders in and other atrocities during the Kosovo conflict.
