Prominent Kosovo Serb politician assassinated
KOSOVSKA MITROVICA: Prominent Kosovo Serb politician Oliver Ivanovic was killed in a brazen drive-by shooting on Tuesday that could reignite ethnic tensions in the region. The assassination of Ivanovic -- who was facing a retrial on war crimes charges over the 1990s Kosovo conflict -occurred on the very day that Belgrade and Pristina resumed talks on normalising ties after a hiatus of more than a year. Kosovo President Hashim Thaci and the government in Pristina “strongly” condemned the assassination.
