Flags flew at half staff across Kosovo on Wednesday in honor of former U.S. President George H. W. Bush. Bush is seen as a figure of national importance in their country for having written a letter threatening Serbia if it attacked. Bush died last week at the age of 94. To Albanians who make up majority in Kosovo, he is best known for his 1992 letter to then President of Serbia Slobodan Milosevic. In the letter, Bush warned Milosevic not to start a conflict in Kosovo, then still part of Serbia after Yugoslavia broke up.
