Nis Express. Nis being a town in Serbia. 16 Feb 2001. 11 Serbs killed by a highly skilled CWIED attack, the like of which had never been seen before in Kosovo, shortly after crossing into Kosovo. A number of suspects arrested by Brits later that year. After being transferred to 'more secure' confinement with the US Army in Camp Bondsteel, the main suspect mysteriously 'escaped' and is still OTR. The case against the others collapsed.
The world (and our US friends) moves in strange ways.
The soldiers who made the video were obliged to apologise for it, KFOR being quite sensitive about not being seen to be biased, not helped by the Noggies calling themselves 'Shiptare Boys' in their opening credits.
And bombdoc, you're correct it's spelt Nis, but you've missed off the little slavic hat from the 's', hence NiÅ¡,
which together with the phonetic 'i' means it's pronounced Neesh rather than Niss.
Funny old thing that chimera isn't it, and our US allies seem to have been slow in assisting with Ops that looked likely to bring old Ejupi back in to custody. Evidently the training he recieved from the Christians back 'para luftÃ«s' was extremely good, given that he managed to get out of the BDC and across the camp (955 acres), over the double wire under the noses of guard towers which all have overlapping arcs and off into the countryside without being spotted or challenged once (in a camp of around 7000 troops), all whilst wearing an orange jump suit. Then again maybe our American cousins just didn't realise they had him in custody, afterall they actually started dismantling the BDC whilst we still had detainees held there back in 2002
Think this was done before the Amarillo vid. made last year or something.
It was in the local press up here as some of them were local boys. The serbs dripped about it, the Norgie army appologised as did the lads. iirc it was made for their end of tour piss up or something and (naturally) it was copied, passed from one mate to another until someone put it up on the internet and then....
