MOST WERE WOMEN AND CHILDREN-WHAT THE SERBS CLAIM IS ALL THAT IS LEFT OF A CONVOY OF ETHIC ALBANIAN REFUGEES - INNOCENT VICTIMS, THE YUGOSLAV GOVERNMENT SAYS, OF A NATO AIR STRIKE GONE BAD. NATO CONFIRMED IT DID HIT MILITARY TARGETS ALONG A ROAD IN SOUTHERN KOSOVO TODAY, BUT SAID NOTHING ABOUT REFUGEES. LEADING THE PENTAGON TO SUGGEST THE ATTACK MAY BE THE WORK OF SERB AIRCRAFT - AND NOT NATO AT ALL.
KEN BACON/PENTAGON SPOKESMAN: We are hearing that there have been attacks by Yugoslav aircraft. AN INDICATION THE YUGOSLAV AIR FORCE MAY NOT BE AS CRIPPLED AS THE ALLIES HAD THOUGHT. IT CAME AT A TIME OF TOUCHY NEGOTIATIONS OVER A NEW PEACE DEAL OFFERED BY GERMANY - A DEAL THAT WOULD ALLOW A PAUSE IN THE AIR STRIKES LONG ENOUGH TO ALLOW SERB FORCES TO RETREAT SAFELY OUT OF KOSOVO.
THE WHITE HOUSE CALLED THE PLAN 'INTERESTING' BUT DID NOT APPEAR PARTICULARLY OPTIMISTIC -- MAKING IT CLEAR SLOBODON MILOSEVIC MUST STILL MEET EACH AND EVERY NATO DEMAND FIRST.
JOE LOCKHART//WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN: If that's capitulation, then he needs to capitulate.
