Kosovo shooting claims life of police officer

A police officer was shot and killed, and another officer was injured in an incident that happened in Kosovo, a place near Serbia.

Kosovo’s Prime Minister, Albin Kurti, said that the attack in the village of Banjska in Leposavic was carried out by skilled individuals using powerful weapons. The situation is still happening, Mr.

There has been a lot of anger and fighting in Kosovo, especially after a local election in May that many people are arguing about.

The talks led by the European Union to bring stability to the situation are not making progress.

Kosovo said they were their own country in 2008, but Serbia, China, and Russia don’t agree with this.

A lot of Serbs think it is where their nation started. Out of the 1. 8 million people living in Kosovo, 92% are Albanian and only 6% are Serbian.

The shooting on Sunday occurred at around 3:00 am. The police had gone to Banjska, a place near the border with Serbia, in response to a reported blockade.

Police officers were violently assaulted by people using many different weapons, such as guns, grenades, and missiles that are fired from the shoulder, as mentioned in an official statement.

Why is there a lot of fighting happening in Kosovo.

The Prime Minister Kurti said that our country is being attacked by organized crime groups that are getting help from Belgrade. He also said that the people who committed the crimes and the ones who told them what to do will be punished.

Kosovo’s President Vjosa Osmani said that the event, which she believes was planned by Serbian criminals, was an assault on the enforcement of laws and the independence of the Republic of Kosovo.

She strongly criticized Serbia for being aggressively towards Kosovo and asked its allies to help Kosovo establish law and order.

Ms Osmani asked people to stay together and showed that she believes in Kosovo’s police.

Serbia has not said anything about the event.

There was trouble in northern Kosovo in May because ethnic Albanian mayors were put in charge of mainly Serbian areas. This happened because the Serbian residents chose not to participate in the local elections.

NATO sent 700 more soldiers to Kosovo to handle the trouble in the town of Zvecan after the elections.

About 30 Nato peacekeepers and over 50 Serb protesters were injured during the clashes that followed.

The most recent discussions led by the EU ended last week without reaching an agreement. The EU’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, blamed Mr. Kurti for not establishing the association of municipalities where Serbs are the majority, which would have given them more control over their own affairs.
