Last night's bombing has caused a complete breakdown in power supply to
about 65% of Serbia, 80% of Republika Srpska in the neighboring Bosnia and
Herzegovina, TiM sources estimate.  Some parts of Croatia and Macedonia,
who also receive power from Obrenovac.

"Civilians are left without water supply, bakeries don't work, hospitals
cannot treat patients etc.," a TiM correspondent from Belgrade reports.
Which means that the TV and Internet services have now also been cut off.
Except for those using laptops, whose batteries are also going to run out
in a few hours.

"Whose capacity to fight were they (NATO) trying to disable - of
pensioners, kids, bakers, kidney patients?" our outraged correspondent
asks, adding that, "THIS IS CLEARLY A WAR CRIME! Atilla the Hun and Hitler
had far more sensitivity for human suffering than (Bill) Clinton, (Gen.
Wesley) Clark and their bunch."
