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.
