SERBS FEAR DISASTER CAUSED BY NATO BOMBING OF CHEMICAL PLANTS In recent weeks, something in the rivers and lakes of Yugoslavia has changed. Fish being caught in the Tamis river are sluggish and sickly, with protruding bones and bulging eyes. "I personally won't eat any fish from the river. Not for the next five years,'' Dragomir Djuric, president of the Tamis River Fishing Club, tells Thursday's CHICAGO TRIBUNE. The Yugoslav government says NATO airstrikes on chemical plants around the country caused an environmental catastrophe in Serbia. "Next month, the United Nations is scheduled to conduct a formal assessment of the environmental damage of the war," reports the paper's Uli Schmetzer from Pancevo. "A young woman named Yelena, who asked that her last name not be used, said she had an abortion this week, fearful that the fetus she was carrying might have been harmed by the air she breathed and the water she drank." Stories are circulating of outsized fruits and vegetables, of trees turning bright yellow in mid-summer. Madame Albright might want to check her liability insurance policy, there is talk on the streets of filing a damage suit against the United States and its leaders on behalf of the people of Pancevo.
