Kosovo war comes under fire

Tuesday, May 2, 2000

Ottawa - The Senate foreign affairs committee yesterday criticized the government's decision to join NATO allies in the Kosovo war last year without first getting a mandate from the United Nations.

The committee also said there needs to be more debate before the government commits troops to dangerous missions.
