Members of Kosovo Security Forces (KSF) and fire fighters search for a missing person at the site where an avalanche hit houses in the village of Restelica, southern Kosovo, Sunday, Feb. 12. Rescuers pulled a 5-year-old girl alive from the rubble of a house flattened by a massive avalanche that killed both of her parents and at least seven of her relatives in the remote mountain village.
NATO peacekeepers, deployed in Kosovo to end the armed conflict between Serbs and Kosovo Albanians in 1999, had been called in to help local authorities in the rescue operation, but were unable to land a helicopter in the blizzard.
