NATO launches third wave of attacks in Yugoslavia

(CNN) -- NATO forces on Friday launched a third wave of air raids against Serb military targets in Yugoslavia.

Cruise missiles were fired from the USS Philippine Sea in the Adriatic.

Gen. Wesley Clark, NATO's supreme commander, had earlier made clear that the bombings were aimed at gradually degrading the Yugoslav armed forces' capacity to continue their attacks on ethnic Albanians in the Serb province of Kosovo.

The United States and Britain repeated Friday that the NATO attacks would stop if Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic ordered a halt to the crackdown in Kosovo and embraced a peace proposal presented at two recent rounds of internationally mediated peace talks in France.
