BELGRADE -- Monday - Several thousand people assembled last night in central Belgrade to pay last tribute to the two Serb teenagers recently killed in the Kosovo village of Gorazdevac.

People from a number of Serbian cities lit candles for the victims and expressed hope that crimes such as that in Gorazdevac would not be repeated.

Aleksandar Milovanovic, executive director of the Democratic Youth Association of Kosovo that organised the rally, said that the death of teenagers Pantelija Dakic and Ivan Jovovic proves that Kosovo Serbs live and die in fear.

"We are asking for the right to live, because a Serbia in which children get killed cannot be a country with a future”, said Milovanovic.

He said it was time that the international community started applying in Kosovo the same human rights standards that are applied in all other European countries.

The organisers announced peaceful protests in front of embassies if the killers are not caught in the near future.

"While Europe sows its fields with wheat and reaps wheat, the Serbs of Kosovo and Metohija sow their fields with the blood of their martyrs and reap death. So it has been for centuries. Kosovo and Metohija Serbs continue to be slaves in freedom without freedom, at home without a home and not only that. They lack elementary human rights; they lack the very right to life. I ask Europe whether these innocent slaughtered children and their innocent blood will be a reminder? Will it also be a reminder to the international community and to all the people for whom there is room to live in Kosovo and Metohija? That evil and crime cannot be used to build a future for oneself nor one's children."
