North Mitrovica: An Albanian young man attacked, a EULEX security vehicle stoned

An young, ethnic Albanian man sustained light injuries after being attacked last night after 22:00h by an unknown group close to the multi-ethnic settlement of Three Towers in North Mitrovica. The incident was soon followed by another one when a EULEX security vehicle was stoned in the same area.

While confirming the reported incident to KoSSev, Deputy Regional Commander Besim Hoti did not exclude that the attacks had been carried out by the same perpetrators. He, furthermore, was optimistic on delivering results of the investigation soon.

„We are currently working on the identification of the perpetrators. It will result in success as we already have certain information on possible perpetrators,“ he said, adding that the police were still collecting information.

Hoti also did not rule out the possibility that the incidents might be related to the football match between Serbia- Switzerland played shortly before the incidents occurred. The Swiss representation at the World Cup in Russia includes several ethnic Albanian players and two of them were goalscorers in their victory over Serbia.
