Return To Kosovo
In Djakovica we met with some of the families of victims killed by the Serb police, including Hyik and Shquibe Spahiu, who invited us into their home. They were still shaken by the death of their son, Astritt, 25, a student of electrical engineering at the University of Pristina. Hyik Spahiu thinking back to all they had been through during the past few months said, "If I try to take revenge and do to the Serbs what they had done to me, I pray to God that NATO stops me." As we prepared to leave and Shquibe began to walk us to the door, her husband, a long-time obstetrician and gynecologist in the city, who treated Serbian and Albanian patients alike, suddenly cried out, "Maybe the man who killed my son was born from my own hands." Both he and his wife begin to weep uncontrollably.
