Kosovo rejects war crimes court

Kosovo’s parliament failed to approve measures to set up a special court to try former fighters accused of war crimes.

The vote, which fell short by 5 votes, was backed by the United States and the European Union, who alleged that former ethnic Albanian fighters with the Kosovo Liberation Army were guilty of war crimes.
