(( SUPER: BELGRADE/THIS MORNING The three Americans were handed over by the Serbs to Rev. Jesse Jackson after a brief ceremony in Belgrade. As the ceremony began, Sgts. Andrew Ramirez and Christopher Stone, and specialist Steven Gonzales stood with their hands behind their backs. Moments later, their 32 days in captivity were at an end:

NATSOT UP JACKSON: "Take your hands out from behind your backs because

you're free and you can embrace!"
NARR: After the ceremony, the three phoned their families with the news they'd been released; then boarded a bus with Jackson - driving to Zagreb, Croatia to board a flight to American facilities in Germany. The soldiers' delighted relatives say they'll fly to Germany for a reunion:

SOT: "He said Reverend Jesse Jackson freed him! He said he is free, he

SUPER: SERBIAN TV NARR: The release of the soldiers came as NATO conceded it had lost its second aircraft in the war in Kosovo. The pilot of an American F-16 ejected near Serbia's western border with Bosnia. NATO spokesmen say the pilot was rescued in good condition, and is back at a NATO base in Europe. NATO isn't confirming Serb reports that the plane was shot down.
SUPER: LUZANE, KOSOVO/SATURDAY
(PUNCH)
SERBIAN TV NARR: NATO IS confirming it was responsible for the destruction of this bus which had been full of civilians. The bus was crossing the Luzane bridge in Kosovo. Serb news agencies put the death toll between 40 and 60. NATO said the bus started crossing the bridge after the bomb which was aimed at the bridge had been released.
SUPER: WASHINGTON, DC/LAST NIGHT Despite the imminent release of the American soldiers, NATO continued its raids, and President Clinton continued to add to the pressure on the Yugoslavian government - imposing trade sanctions and freezing Yugoslavian assets in the United States, while again suggesting a formula for ending hostilities.

SOT CLINTON: "I again ask Mr. Milosevic: Let the Kosovars come home,

with the Serb forces out and an international force to protect all the people including the Serb minority in Kosovo."
SUPER: YUGOSLAVIA-CROATIA BORDER/THIS MORNING NARR: Jesse Jackson says he's carrying a letter from the Yugoslav leader to the President on his trip home with the soldiers.

SUGGESTED TAG:

And THIS late word from NATO: ANOTHER U.S. warplane .. this one a U.S. Marine Corps AV8B Harrier .. crashed in the Adriatic Sea Saturday while on a TRAINING mission for operations in the Balkans.
NATO spokesman Jamie Shea in Brussels says the plane was not involved in the air strikes on Yugoslavia when it came down and there is no suspicion it was hit by hostile fire.
The pilot was reported safely rescued.

Meanwhile, A U-S congressional delegation reportedly says IT has secured the agreement of a team of senior Russian lawmakers and an adviser to President Milosevic on a framework to resolve the Kosovo crisis.
Congressman Curt Weldon tells Reuters he is sure the accord, which he says was hammered out during two days of talks in Vienna and includes the deployment of an armed international force in Kosovo, has Milosevic's support. ))

The craft is one of several that ferries tourists on onto Lake Hamilton, near Hot Springs.
