January - February. Ethnic Albanians forming a line at a snow covered cemetery pay their respects to a family of five killed during the January outbreak of violence. Early in the year, conflict resumed after fragile truce, causing another wave of refugees. In mid-January, 45 ethnic Albanians were killed during a Serb offensive on the village of Racak. Later in the month in Rogovo, west of Priština, 24 ethnic Albanians were ambushed and shot.
