- Story Text: Some of the hundreds of thousands of ethnic Albanian refugees from Kosovo have been fortunate enough to be taken in by local families in Albania.
In Kukes some of the ethnic Albanian refugees from Kosovo camped out on Tuesday (April 27) in the town park, unable to find anywhere else to live.
Others have more luck.Refugee Hysnie Bagrami and her family were taken in by a local Albanian family.
Kadre Nerguti lives in a poor apartment building in Kukes, with little money to spend on her own family.
But she took pity on the plight of refugees and opened her house to the Bagrami family.
Kadre Nerguti said "Its terrible for me to see these people who left their country because of the Serbs, they came here to be more quiet but probably we can't meet all of their demands."
Refugee Hysnie Bagrami said that although they were now safe, life was not good, "we are sleeping badly, life is expensive, we have no money, we get no clothes, we have nothing for the little baby, we have no food for the children, it is the children that we care about."
Other refugees queue at the Post Office telephone exchange to try and track down friends and relatives.
