Final Report to the Prosecutor by the Committee Established to Review the NATO Bombing Campaign Against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia | ICTY The Hague |

China demanded the United Sates make further investigations be made into the U.S. bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade, which occurred last year at the height of during NATO's air war against Yugoslavia.

Beijing says the U.S. explanation of the bombing - that targeters mistook the embassy for a Yugoslav military target located nearby - is "very difficult to believe".

Beijing's dismissive response came despite repeated U.S. apologies and the C.I.A.'s punishment of seven officials, including the firing of one employee blamed for incorrectly targeting the embassy.

Beijing is insisting that ties between Beijing and Washington can not fully recover until they get an explanation they find satisfactory.    

On May 7th last year, NATO's bombing of the Serbian capital Belgrade reached a new intensity.

But as Belgrade rocked with explosions, a U.S. B-2 bomber unleashed its laser-guided bombs upon a target whose destruction shocked the world.
