Kosovo Serb Shot Dead, Son Seriously Wounded; Albanians Blamed for Ethnically Motivated Attack

The Hurriyet (Turkish) Daily News website reports that a Kosovo Serb was shot dead and his son seriously wounded today (October 2, 2011), and the local Serb mayor said the killers were from Kosovo's ethnic Albanian majority.

"The two persons were in a restaurant owned by an Albanian and after they went out someone was waiting for them, killing one and injuring another," said Hazir Berisha, Kosovo police spokesman.

He added that police have been searching the area, but have not arrested anyone yet.

The Serb mayor of the southern town of Orahovac blamed Albanians and called the attack ethnically motivated.

Albanians in Kosovo are mostly Muslims, while Serbs tend to be of the Greek Orthodox faith.
