Kreshnik Spahiu, leader of the Red and Black Alliance political party, speaks during an interview with Reuters in Tirana March 6, 2013. Albanians regard the settlements as their own, dating from when the Balkans marked the western reaches of the sprawling Ottoman Empire. Some are still home to Albanians, restive minorities in the 100 years since the borders of today's Albania were set by the Great Powers in London. A century on, Spahiu says they should be united, and the nationalist rallying call of his party is resonating among impoverished Albanians ahead of a parliamentary election in the NATO member state in June.
