Albania says Serb forces cross border, occupy village

TIRANA, Albania (CNN) -- Yugoslav troops have crossed the border and occupied a town in northern Albania, Albanian government officials said Tuesday.

Yugoslav infantry overwhelmed border guards and seized the village of Kemenica, which has been subjected to Serb artillery fire over the past several days, Albanian Interior Minister Petro Koci said.

The town is located along a stretch of border where the ethnic Albanian guerrillas of the Kosovo Liberation Army have been battling Serb-led Yugoslav troops.

An observer with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe confirmed the incursion, suggesting it was a reprisal for earlier KLA attacks in the Serbian province of Kosovo.

Yugoslavia denies any incursion occurred.
