Kosovo Liberation Army fighter Ali Paqarizi (19) dies of wounds from a landmine, a few days after the NATO deadline for the Serb pull-out from Kosovo in October. The conflict between ethnic Albanians in the Serbian province of Kosovo and the Serbs, from whom they were seeking independence, left hundreds dead and more than a quarter of a million people homeless.
