    Background: Yugoslav police broke up Albania nationalist demonstrations on Saturday (3 April) in Urosevac, a town in the troubled province of Kosovo. Young people in the province were out to mark the anniversary of riots last spring, in which nine people were killed and more than 250 were injured. The authorities then imposed a seven-month state of emergency in Kosovo, which is mainly populated by ethnic Albanians who want autonomy from the Yugoslav state. The Yugoslav National News Agency (Tranjug) reported that a group of 200 people, mainly students, demonstrated in Urosevac on Saturday. They were dispersed when police intervened and no arrests were reported. The authorities have warned that they will deal harshly with any further protests from what is Yugoslavia's poorest region. The government has also announced prison sentences of up to 15 years for young Albanians convicted of taking part in last year's disturbances.
