Ethnic Violence

It was reported today that two Serb teenagers, age 17 and 19, were attacked and beaten by a group of Albanians outside an Orthodox church in the village of Mogila, near Vitina.  The news is being overshadowed by Rugova's death and there is little information available other than the matter has been handed over to KPS and KFOR.
Additionally, yesterday the Self-Determination group deflated (slashed from what I hear) the tires on 37 UN vehicles parked on Police Avenue.  One person was arrested and parking has been restricted.  It is rather disturbing that an occurrence like this has happened because the vehicles were parked directly across from the Central KPS station.
