Assassination Attempt on Kosovo Telecomms Director

Yesterday at approximately 1615hours, two rocket propelled grenades were fired at the Kosovo Telecomms Director, Anton Berisha, and his police escort near Malishevo.  This is the second time that an attempt has been made on Berisha's life.  During the attack, one grenade hit a KPS vehicle and an officer was injured in the leg. 
Three Albanians were later arrested in connection with the attack.  One of the suspects was found with two grenades and a grenade launcher was found at the scene of the attack.  After questioning, an additional four Albanians were arrested and some more ordinance was recovered in Pristina.
