Police Searching For Shooters Of Four Kosovar Serbs

29 August 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Police in Kosovo are appealing to the public for help in finding those responsible for the killing of two Serb youths over the weekend.

Two other Serb youths were also wounded in the attack, which occurred on the Urosevac-Skopje highway late on 27 August.

Police say the four victims were traveling in a vehicle when unknown gunmen sprayed their car with bullets.

While Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica has blamed the attack on ethnic Albanians, police say it is unclear if the shooting was ethnically motivated.

Six years since the end of a war between Serb security forces and Albanian guerrillas, UN-administered Kosovo remains volatile and subject to ethnic tensions.
