Explosion Rocks Serbian School

An explosion ripped through a classroom in the village of Ropotovo minutes after the children had left the room.  Investigators believe that the explosion was caused by a hand grenade placed in a stove and that the incident was not ethnically motivated but rather due to conflicts over the management of the school.  There also is a question as to why the children were removed from the room before the explosion.  The instructor was conveniently late for the class so the students were transferred to another classroom minutes before the blast.  A KPS spokesman stated that three Serbian men were being held for questioning following the incident. 
In other news, the parliament of Albania has adopted a resolution calling for a quick resolution to Kosovo's status and recommending that independence be granted.  <soapbox>Cynically viewing the resolution...I guess the Albanian parliament doesn't have anything else to solve their own problems :-P  I can understand politicians in other countries making press statements but having the government actually spend time drafting a resolution on affairs in another country...that's a bit strange, don't you think?  It would be kind of like having Mexico pass a resolution saying that they think that California should be independent...or the US Congress passing a resolution saying that Canada should give up Quebec.  Yeah...that'd go over real well :o) </soapbox>
