Another Bus Attack

An explosive device was thrown at another bus traveling from Dragas to Belgrade.  This is the second attack on a bus from Dragas in a month.  None of the 55 passengers, mostly Albanian, were injured but the bus was damaged.  There is little information at this time but concerns are rising that these type of incidents will continue as the final status talks draw closer.
In unrelated news, President Ibrahim Rugova's religious tenants are causing wild speculation after rumors that he has been asked to be buried as a Catholic.  It is rumored that Rugova may have converted to Catholicism in 1999 by Pope John Paul II while others declare that it is just a political move to get the world behind Kosovo's bid for independence.  Whatever the case, it is an interesting new development for Kosovo Albanians who many seem to synonymously equate being Albanian to being Muslim.
