Conflict between ethnic Albanian rebels and Macedonian forces has raged and ebbed in recent weeks with an on-again off-again cease-fire and continuing negotiations for peace. There is no guarantee that the cease-fire will hold or peace talks will be successful, and significant anti-foreigner anger has spilled out on the streets of Skopje, with protests at numerous diplomatic missions, including the U.S. Embassy. The U.S. State Department has imposed an 8 p.m. curfew in downtown Skopje on official Americans and ordered the departure of all personnel in non-emergency positions. Travel to Macedonia should be avoided at this time.
