PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro-Two ethnic Albanians were killed and seven were wounded Saturday in a shootout between two families allegedly over a property dispute, police said.
The exchange of gunfire occurred in the town of Stimlje, 25 kilometers (15 miles) southwest of Kosovo's capital Pristina following an argument, said Violeta Elezaj, a police spokeswoman.
Among the dead was the town's deputy mayor, Vezir Bajrami, an official from the opposition Democratic Party of Kosovo, the party's spokeswoman said.
Most of the injured were being treated at a hospital. Several suspects were arrested, Elezaj said, adding that police suspect the motive of the incident was a property dispute.
Kosovo, formally a province of Serbia-Montenegro, has been administered by the United Nations since mid-1999, following a NATO air war that halted Serb forces' crackdown on ethnic Albanians seeking independence.
Perhaps fighting over the property spoils of dispossessed Serbs.
And we get to observe Kosovo descend in more lawlessness as the failure of the Clinton legacy looms larger.
Where is Wussly Clark?
Most Ethnic Albanians are Muslims, so as Martha Stewart would say .....
Don't say that name or he'll be the guest on every cable news show for the next week, bashing the Bush Balkans policy!
My first thought upon reading it! Beat me to it lol.
That's a good thing? I mean, "That's a good thing"? :)
What a bunch of crap, Kosovo is still currently a part of Serbia and the Serbs where cracking down on a bunch of narcoterrorists.
