So when did things actually turn the other way round? Sorry for the stupid question - I never had the opportunity to follow the events in any media except Bulgarian until about a year ago. If any one has been keeping an eye on it, could you please tell - on or off list? Thanks!

In Yugoslavia, Rising Ethnic Strife Brings Fears of Worse

Civil Conflict

By DAVID BINDER, Special to the New York Times

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia "Portions of southern Yugoslavia have reached such a state of ethnic friction that

Yugoslavs have begun to talk of the horrifying possibility of ''civil war'' in a land that

lost one-tenth of its population, or 1.7 million people, in World War II.

The current hostilities pit separatist-minded ethnic Albanians against the various

Slavic populations of Yugoslavia and occur at all levels of society, from the highest

officials to the humblest peasants."
