Balkans: August 4, 2003


Sporadic, "low level" attacks continue in Kosovo. Usually the violence is directed at ethnic rivals (ie, Kosovar Albanian radicals attacking Kosovar Serbs, or vice versa). Not this week-- someone upped the ante. An unknown sniper shot and killed a UN policeman August 3. UN sources said it was the first murder of an officer on duty in Kosovo. The UNMIK officer was shot while riding in a marked UN police vehicle on the road between Leposavic and Mitrovica (north of Pristina)
