Attack in Pristina

At approximately 2330 CET, two hand grenades were thrown into the area below the Sports Center where some of the Police&Justice have offices.  Two civilian vehicles and one UN vehicle were damaged and one civilian was injured.  There still is not much information on who was responsible for the attack but I've heard a rumor that it was related to Pristina Mafia rather than the indictment against Haradinaj. 
There was to be a peaceful demonstration on Monday in Pristina but after the incident, it was cancelled.  If people decide to demonstrate anyway, I am certain that there will be zero-tolerance on the part of the police for any troublemakers.

Movement to Peja/Pec is still restricted and no international staff are allowed to go out after 1900 until sunrise.
