. Albanian Gangs Abduct Kosovo Refugee Girls for Prostitution; Some Are
Killed If They Resist

VLORE, May 25 - While the Washington and Brussels Kosovo "Wag the Dog"
producers keep spinning tales, real or imagined, about alleged rapes of
Kosovo Albanian women by the Serb soldiers, heinous crimes are taking
right under the western reporters noses in Albania.  The victims are the
same - Kosovo Albanian girls. But the perpetrators of the are the Albanian
gangsters. They abduct female refugees, often at gun point, and sell them
off to prostitution, mainly in Italy.

Sometimes, however, they also kill them.  Such as was the fate of the
16-year old Jola Spasolli. Albanian gangsters killed a Kosovo refugee
teenager and wounded her father after he tried  to prevent them kidnapping
her for a prostitution ring, police said on Tuesday (May 25), according to
a Reuters news wire report.
