Kosovo Explosion Injures Three, Damages Party Offices

18 April 2005 -- An explosion in Prishtina, the capital of the Serbian province of Kosovo, has slightly injured three children and damaged the offices of a political party.

The blast late Sunday occurred outside the offices of ORA, an opposition political party led by Kosovo Albanian Veton Surroi, who also owns the "Koha Ditore" newspaper.

Police said three children who lived in the same building were slightly injured in the blast.

The explosion is the latest in a series of violent incidents in Kosovo.

Earlier yesterday, tens of thousands of people attended the funeral of the slain brother of former Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj. Enver Haradinaj was gunned down last on 15 April by unknown attackers who escaped. The United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague allowed Ramush Haradinaj to briefly leave the tribunal's custody to attend the funeral.
