Kosovar Prime Minister Resigns

Western news agencies report that Agim Ceku, the commander of the province's fledgling army and a former rebel commander, was expected to be named as Kosumi's successor.

Kosova, which is formally a province of Serbia but has been under a UN-led administration since 1999, is in the midst of talks on its future status with Belgrade.
