One Serb Killed, Two Injured in Northern Kosovo

One Serb and two were injured in a clash on Wednesday evening in the north of Kosovo.  According to a statement from OSCE, one of the injured is reported to be a Kosovo police officer who responded to the initial shooting.  Stories on what happened are varying depending on the source.  Some say that the shooting is alleged to have taken place during a quarrel between Albanians and Serbs although it is unclear who did the shooting.  And other reports are that the shooting occured in response to a robbery when Serbs were trying to break into Albanian homes.

All international organizations and the governments of Serbia and Kosovo have condemned the shooting.  Serb residents and politicians are calling for a swift investigation into the incident by EULEX.
