New millennium celebrations on bridge linking Serb and Albanian communities: The Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Kosovo, Dr Bernard Kouchner travelled this evening (local times) to celebrate the new millennium on the Mitrovica bridge linking the Serb and Albanian communities of that town. The event on the bridge will feature representatives and musicians from both the Serb and Albanian communities, as well as representatives of UNMIK and KFOR. Dr. Kouchner, who is travelling through heavy snow with a retinue of staff and journalists, plans to deliver a brief speech at the bridge before returning to Pristina where he will bring in the New Year by attending a classical music concert at Pristina Theatre. A moment of silence will be observed before the concert to pay tribute to all missing persons in Kosovo.
