Cemetery Mejė Massacre

On 27 April 1999, 372 Kosovo Albanian civilians were murdered by Serbian police and paramilitaries and Yugoslav Army forces as an act of retaliation for the killing of six Serbian policemen by the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). The men were pulled from refugee convoys at a checkpoint in Meja and their families were ordered to proceed to Albania. Men and boys were separated and then executed along the road.
Nowadays the cemetery is a large memorial park.
