There's "accidentally" being shot - like what was reported as having happened to two Italian KFOR soldiers - and they weren't the only ones in Kosovo to be shot or have shot themselves "accidentally".

June 1999

On the evening of 24 June, an Italian soldier died at the university hospital in Pristina after discharging his weapon accidentally.

Italian KFOR soldier dies in accidental shooting

PRISTINA, Yugoslavia, April 2 (AFP) - An Italian soldier in the Kosovo peacekeeping force (KFOR) died Sunday of an accidental gunshot wound at his military base in Pec, eastern Kosovo, a KFOR spokesman said.

The 29-year-old corporal died of a bullet wound to the head, but the spokesman said officials were "virtually certain this was not a suicide." He gave no details of the incident.
