      BELGRADE -- St. Vitus Day, a religious holiday when Serbs commemorate
      the 1389 Battle of Kosovo, was marked in all Serbian Orthodox
      Christian temples today.

      The ceremonies continued by liturgies in the monastery of Grac(anica
      and memorial service in Gazimestan, devoted to the Kosovo heroes who
      lost their lives in the battle that took place 619 years ago.

      Several thousand Serbs rallied in Gazimestan to attend the service,
      with intensified police and KFOR patrols are securing the event.

      The service dedicated to the souls of Serbia's fallen soldiers more
      than 600 years ago was also held in the Church of Sv. Marko in Belgrade.
