See : http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/kosovo/etc/cron.html Riots began in 1989 after Milosovec engineered alterations to the Serbian constitution that greatly affected the Kosovarians & by 1994 ethnic cleansing was being enacted that causes NATO airstrikes from 24 April against Bosnian Serbs & 1996 sees the rise of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) who on 23 Feb 1998 get labelled Terrorists by the USA thus giving Milosevic (in his mind anyway) a green light resulting in greater aggression but by 7 May 1998 the USA backtrack & stated "We will not allow the Serbs to do in Kosovo what they can no longer do in Bosnia" resulting in economic sanctions & an arms embargo with many talks taking place, while Serbian attacks & KLA retaliation’s continue throughout the year while multi national peacekeeping forces are drafted in. Finally on 20 Jun 1999 Serbs complete a withdrawal from Kosovo & on 20 Sep 1999 KFOR confirms that KLA has also completed demilitarisation.
