The Albanians

The Albanians

Angry protestors demonstrate against President Sali Berisha in Vier, Albania, by holding up money notes as a symbol of their loss after the collapse of the country's pyramid schemes. When the conflict peaked in February and March, the staff at local mental hospitals fled from Vlora, Albania. In April, the nurses returned, but the residents continued to live in terrible conditions. After the 1997 collapse of Albania's economy, widespread looting and ethnic conflict broke out in Kosovo, a majority Albanian province in southern Serbia, which led to the mass exodus of thousands of ethnic Albanians in 1998 and early 1999; nearly all of these 850,000 refugees returned to Kosovo starting in mid-1999, many seeking revenge against the Serbs.
