appeal no. 27/98
situation report no. 4 - Operation extended to 9 February 1999
period covered: 1 December 1998 - 10 February 1999
A good appeal response and competitive prices for relief items has enabled the Indian Red Cross Society branches to increase the number of beneficiaries from 20,000 to 26,000. However transport problems and difficulties with rice purchases slowed down distributions which are still in progress. The operation has therefore been extended from December 9th to February 9th, 1999.

BLACE, Macedonia, March 24 (Reuters) - Macedonia began allowing Yugoslav citizens to leave Kosovo again on Wednesday having closed the border for a day, apparently fearing instability if NATO strikes Yugoslavia.

"The order to close the border (to Yugoslav citizens) has been lifted as of now. We don't know whether we will be asked to close it again later," a border official said, as around 15 people from the Kosovo provincial capital Pristina crossed with Yugoslav passports. The official said there were about 100-150 people from the Yugoslav side waiting to pass.
