Weather, air defenses hamper NATO

NATO says airstrikes have not been able to stop Serb aggression against ethnic Albanians

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Since airstrikes against Yugoslavia began one week ago, there has only been one day on which NATO pilots have been able to complete all their missions.

Weather has hampered Operation Allied Force, and Serb air defenses are still effective. Pentagon officials acknowledge that, so far, they have not been able to stop what President Clinton has called Serb "atrocities against innocent people."

For details on the obstacles facing NATO, watch these reports from Correspondents Aram Roston and Martin Savidge.
