Blasts Go Off at Kosovo Police Station
2 hours, 39 minutes ago

PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro - Explosions damaged two police stations in Kosovo in simultaneous attacks, a U.N. police spokesman said Saturday. No one was injured.

 

The attacks late Friday targeted Pristina police stations manned by both U.N. and local police, spokesman Al Garcia said. No motive was known, and police had no suspects, he added.

The blasts broke windows at both stations and damaged at least one U.N. police car.

Kosovo's police stations were put on alert because of the attacks, Garcia said. An investigation was underway.

Kosovo has been run by the United Nations (news - web sites) and NATO (news - web sites) since 1999, when the military alliance bombed Serb troops loyal to former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic (news - web sites) to stop their crackdown on independence-minded ethnic Albanians.

About 4,500 U.N. police officers and 5,500 local officers provide everyday security in the province.
