      Macedonia's government has declared Saturday a day of
      national mourning after Friday's killing of seven soldiers by
      suspected rebels that cast more doubt on plans to sign a peace
      deal on Monday. The violence followed the ambush killings of
      ten soldiers and five suspected ethnic Albanian rebels earlier in
      the week. Western mediators insist that Monday's signing should
      go ahead. Under peace terms, negotiated by slav Macedonian
      and ethnic Albanian political leaders at Lake Ohrid, rebels
      would renounce violence in return for greater safeguards for
      Macedonia's Albanian minority. NATO has offered to collect
      rebel arms, if a lasting ceasefire takes hold.
