    The Skopje Zoo is a 12-hectare (30-acre) zoo in the city Park, Skopje, Macedonia. It is home to about 300 animals representing around 85 species. The zoo was founded in 1926. When it opened, the zoo covered only 4 hectares (9.9 acres), and exhibited only a few animals which it had received as gifts. With a decision by the Skopje city council in 1965, and the new town zoning in 1966, the zoo was expanded to its current size.

English/Nat United States Defence Secretary William Cohen and General Wesley Clark, Supreme Commander of NATO, arrived in Macedonia to cheers of welcome on Saturday. The men had come from visiting troops in Kosovo, where ethnic Albanian Kosovars chanted "NATO" in their honour. Cohen made the trip one day after he secured a deal with Russian officials over their forces peacekeeping role in Kosovo. United States Defence Secretary William Cohen visited American NATO troops in Kosovo on Saturday. He was accompanied by NATO Supreme Commander General Wesley Clark. It was their first visit to the region since the NATO bombing campaign against Serbia started more than two months ago. Cohen and Clarke touched down in Skopje's airport in Macedonia and then set off for the area of Gnjilane inside Kosovo, where the American forces have their base. Three-thousand-300 U-S Army and Marine soldiers are stationed in the American-controlled sector of Kosovo. Next month there will be as many as seven-thousand when the U-S completes its NATO quota in the area. Cohen told the troops he looks forward to integrating the Russians into the Kosovo force. He reached an agreement on the Russian role after three days of talks with Russian officials in Helsinki. SOUNDBITE: (English) "So it's going to be important that we have a vigorous robust K-FOR presence that is prepared to make sure that the agreement that's been signed is fully implemented so that's where you come into play." SUPER CAPTION: William Cohen, United States Defence Secretary General Wesley Clark tried to boost the confidence of men who did not even know how long they would be needed in the region. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We're happy you're here. They want your help. They want the security and confidence that the United States Marine Corps brings to them. That the United States Armed Forces brings. They know you're going to be fair, you're going to be straight, you're going to be hard. But they know that you care.And already we're seeing the results of this and we're just proud of each and every one of your for what you're doing." SUPER CAPTION: General Wesley Clark, NATO Supreme Commander Cohen had left Finland earlier in the day after securing an agreement the night before with Russian Defence Minister Igor Sergeyev. The deal set out a strategy for Russian and NATO forces to work together to keep the peace in Kosovo. Russia will keep control over its forces - but within the NATO chain of command - and will have key positions of responsibility within NATO and at Pristina airport. It was the surprise arrival of Russia's 200 troops at the Pristina airport that brought NATO to a shocked standstill when they moved into the city two weeks ago. SOUNDBITE: (English) "One of the reasons we were able to negotiate successfully with the Russians last evening is that we wanted them as part of this peacekeeping force. They helped to make a peace agreement. We want to make sure they are also there to help enforce it. And so they will be sharing a responsibility to help to keep the peace. And so that should be sending a message of assurance to those who are fearful that there'll be retribution. We don't want to see retribution. We want to see a safe return of the refugees and allow a self-government so that everyone can live in peace and security." SUPER CAPTION: William Cohen, United States Defence Secretary Ethnic Albanians gave the U-S defence secretary a hero's welcome in Kosovo on Saturday. He was greeted by ethnic Albanians in Gnjilane, where he had visited U-S NATO troops, in a chorus of chants of "NATO". One man was so overcome he kissed the politician, and later had to be prised off.

English/Nat The first group of some 2-thousand U-S Marines, who are to participate in the Kosovo peacekeeping force, have reached Skopje, Macedonia after arriving in Greece earlier on Thursday. The American troops landed on a beach, about 45 miles (70 kilometres) southwest of the northern port of Salonica after spending days waiting aboard ships in the Aegean Sea. Now that NATO has suspended airstrikes, Macedonia, has become the staging point for the movement of the 50-thousand-strong peacekeeping force bound for the troubled province. More than 2-thousand U-S marines have been docked in the Aegean sea off Greece for days. But on Thursday the first wave of American troops, headed for a possible Kosovo peace keeping mission, prepared to come ashore. On board U-S-S Kearsage equipment was being readied for the landing at Litohoro, near Thessaloniki, in northern Greece. U-S-S Kearsage was one of three vessels carrying members of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit. The deployment came after several days of delays because the Greek government insisted that an agreement between the Yugoslav army and NATO be signed first. They feared an escalation of public unrest. Although a member of the Western alliance, Greece has been a hotbed of opposition to the air attacks on Yugoslavia. Before the troops hit the beach, riot police had cleared the area of about 3-hundred mostly communist demonstrators. They had been chanting anti-American slogans while holding large banners saying "Killers go home." That large sign denouncing NATO and the United States was left on the beach front, dotted by fishing shacks, traditional taverns and a resort hotel filled with bewildered German tourists. Military officials said it could take up to three days to transport all the troops and equipment from the ships to the crescent of sandy beach. Convoys immediately began leaving for neighbouring Macedonia, the staging ground for the NATO-led peacekeeping force. Later on Thursday the first group of American troops crossed the border after a minor delay. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We're stopped here at the border seems to be a problem with paper work for us to enter into Macedonia. Q: What is the problem now? "I'm not exactly sure - then don't have any lists of the people coming in." Q: What time are you entering Macedonia - do you have a time or no? "What time (looks at watch) right now." SUPER CAPTION:G.Coleman, 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion After the delay, the convoy headed on into Macedonia. Within a couple of hours they'd made it as far as Skopje where they now await the go-ahead for the final and most testing part of their journey - into Kosovo. Now that NATO has suspended airstrikes, Macedonia has become the staging point for the movement of the 50-thousand-strong peacekeeping force bound for the troubled province. Of that force about 7-thousand will be U-S troops. The Marines will more than triple the number of U-S servicemen currently in Macedonia.

Natural Sound Thousands of ethnic Albanian refugees continued to flood over the border between Kosovo and Macedonia on Monday, bringing with them tales of systematic Serb brutality against their population. The exodus came as NATO stepped up its air campaign against Yugoslavia in an attempt to end the rout of ethnic Albanians from the province. As the exodus gathers pace, officials in Albanian and Kosovo have pleaded for international help to prevent a humanitarian crisis. NATO troops continued to patrol the Macedonian border with Kosovo on Monday. The airstrikes continue over Yugoslavia, as NATO tries to ease what officials said was fast becoming Europe's worst humanitarian disaster since World War II. But Yugoslav officials said NATO's attack was only inflaming the crisis, and Russian Defence Minister Igor Sergeyev claimed 1-thousand civilians had been killed in Yugoslavia during the campaign that has reached its sixth day. Belgrade has not announced casualty estimates, although Yugoslav U-N envoy Vladislav Jovanovic claimed on Friday that hundreds of civilians had been killed. NATO has said it is avoiding civilian targets, and it is impossible to independently confirm casualty figures. Meanwhile, in neighbouring Macedonia, U-S Marine guards have been posted outside the U-S embassy. The building has come under attack in recent days, as Serbs living in Macedonia protest against the war. The Macedonian capital, Skopje, is also drawing in refugees. NATO estimates that more than 500-thousand ethnic Albanians, a quarter of the population of Kosovo, had been driven from their homes - 50-thousand of them in the past few days alone.
