Serbian paramilitary group, outlawed by the United Nations in Kosovo, has threatened to target UN and NATO peacekeepers in the province, declaring them "terrorists and occupiers," according to a letter obtained by The Associated Press on Friday. The threat comes a day before Kosovo's ethnic Albanians and Serbia's leaders meet in direct talks to discuss Kosovo's future on the margins of the UN General Assembly, in New York. The letter was e-mailed to the UN and NATO. The Guard of Czar Lazar - named after a medieval Serb leader who reportedly fought the Ottoman Turks in Kosovo in 1389 - said the UN and NATO would face "plenty of surprises," should they prevent a protest that the group has called for Oct. 14 in Kosovo's Serb dominated north. The militiamen said they would also "intervene in the event of a unilateral declaration of independence."
