Police patrolled the streets of restive Kosovo Province Wednesday and buried their dead during a lull in a fierce outbreak of ethnic unrest that killed up to 29 people.

Reports from Pristina, the chief Kosovo town, said the situation was calm but tense Wednesday after six days of unrest that began last Thursday when the Kosovo regional parliament relinquished governing power to the Serbian Republic, which encompasses Kosovo and the province of Vojvodina."There are no riots and strong police forces are patrolling the streets of Pristina," said a Yugoslav journalist in Kosovo, a province some 190 miles south of Belgrade where 1.8 million ethnic Albanians outnumber 200,000 Serbs, who are a majority in the country.
