Thousands in Podgorica Montenegro held prayer vigils and lighted candles to pay tribute to Serb victims of recent violence in Kosovo on Friday, March 19, 2004. Thirty one people have been killed since the eruption of violence on Tuesday, and dozens of Serb churches were torched. Albanians blamed Serbs for the drowning of two ethnic Albanian children, and have since forced hundreds of Serbs to leave their homes through violence and rampant killings.
