Blast kills 1, in­jures 11 at Serb rally

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

MITRO­VICA — A hand grenade tore through a Serb protest in Mitro­vica, killing one man and leav­ing about 11 other peo­ple with shrap­nel wounds, po­lice and doc­tors said. In­te­rior Min­is­ter Ba­jram Rex­hepi blamed the blast on “care­less armed Serb pro­test­ers,” sug­gest­ing a grenade ex­ploded ac­ci­den­tally. Mitro­vica, a town split by a river into an eth­nic Serb area and an eth­nic Al­ba­nian one, has of­ten been a scene of clashes be­tween mi­nor­ity Serbs and Kosovo’s eth­nic Al­ba­nian ma­jor­ity.
