  • [01] SITUATION IN DURRES SEAPORT RETURNING TO NORMAL

    DURRES, MARCH 23 (ATA)- By S. Gjordeni, The situation in the Durres Seaport, some 45 kms from Tirana, is returning to normal.

    A ship with some 1 200 tons of flour, brought from Albanian private owners, will be unloaded today in this port.

    The chief of the Durres police commissariat, Arben Hasanbelliu, told ATA that "police forces have been reinforced in the port, in cooperation with port civilians, who are equipped with distinguishing signs. All the roadblocks to and from the port have been regularly operating.

    These measures are serving the normalisation of the port operation, he said.

    In the context of the general measures to restore order and peace in Durres, to check for weapons and protect the port, the district police commissariat today has mobilised forces at all roadblocks of the district in cooperation with the special forces from the Interior Ministry, equipped with armoured vehicles. a/ke/kei/lm/k

    [02] BERAT UNDER WEIGHT OF FEAR

    BERAT, MARCH 23 (ATA)-Fearful for the Berati inhabitants was also Saturday night.

    The Berati streets become empty since after 13.00. Only cars move at high speed after this time. Gunshots are mostly heard beginning from the afternoon hours. Last night, besides automatic fire, explosive devices were used as well.

    Other stores were damaged last night by armed groups. Several houses were raided, with many families being threatened for money. For two days in succession the local government offices have been targets of looting.

    Last night at about 19:30 a person, wearing a bulletproof jacket, was killed in the "Clirimi" quarter but he is not yet identified.

    Meanwhile, groups of peasants have complained to the local government that while entering the Berati town they had been attacked, and their cattle and other productions had been looted.

    The lack of police presence adds to this fear. The Berati citizens appeal to the government to restore order and peace. kei/lm/k

    [05] TIRANA ISSUES MESSAGES OF PEACE TO WHOLE ALBANIA

    TIRANA, MARCH 23 9AAT)- By P. Shuteriqi, Thousands of Tirana inhabitants, many of them mothers and children, rallied at the "Skenderbej" square on Sunday, bringing messages of peace and understanding and expressing their indignation against killings, violence, plundering and looting, which have recently terrorised the population of many towns and cities of Albania.

    The peaceful demonstration was organised by the "Skenderbej" Foundation, the Student group for Civilisation, the Albanian Youth Council, OSPES, the Social Sciences Young Scholars Association, the Albanian Human Rights group and the group "I love Albania".

    A group of children chanted "We want peace, school". They were joined by other citizens with the slogan "From the south to the north - Albania is one".

    Many of those present, carrying banners with the names of all the districts, formed a symbolic cordon of the whole country.

    Inhabitants of Tirana and other districts of the country contributed money for the restoration of the Agricultural University of Kamze which was completely looted by groups of vandals.

    Italian ambassador to Albania, Paolo Foresti, also joined the peaceful demonstration. On behalf of the embassy he granted an amount of money for the restoration of this university centre.

    Today's activity was financially backed by the Albanian Foundation of Civic Association and that of Reconciliation.

    Tomorrow, a group of youths from the capital will take part in the restoration of the Kamze university. kei/lm
