Serbian Couple Killed In Kosovo

A Serbian couple has been found shot dead in their home south of the Kosovo capital, Pristina.

They were found by a neighbor in the village in southeastern Kosovo where they had returned in 2004, five years after the 1999 war.

"Each of them had been shot with one bullet," police spokesman Agim Gashi told AFP by telephone, adding that the motive was unknown.

Police identified the husband and wife as aged 52 and 50.

Gashi said police were carrying out "an extensive investigation" into the killings.

The Serbian government condemned the attack, calling it an attempt to compel the few remaining Serbs to leave Kosovo.
