Kosovo's environmental organizations have sounded the red alarm after the Gazeta Express published that NATO hid a report which says that during the 1999 bombing NATO threw out as many as 10 tons of impoverished uranium.
Media in Kosovo have published even the exact locations where the bombs fell the most during the bombing. The map shows that the biggest concentration of bombs was in the Sar Planina region and the Dervenska Klisura and Kacanik region.
The report says that uranium adversely influences the quality of air, soil and water, and can cause abortions and cancer.
In terms of soil pollution, the biggest impact is on corn, sun flower, soya, sugar beet and all vegetables.
Due to this fact, the whole amount of food Kosovo gets is from import. After the bombing, the locals were advised not to plant their fields as the pollution is great and planting can have serious consequences on their health.
The soldiers of KFOR were banned to eat outside their bases which serves as a proof that they were aware of the adverse effects of NATO's bombs.
