Balkans: March 23, 2004


On March 23 two policemen were killed in Kosovo. One was an UNMIK police officer and the other a Kosovar. They died in an "incident" in the village of Luzane. UNMIK is investigating.

UNMIK and other sources now say last week's Kosovo riots and assassinations left 28 killed and over 850 injured. 56 KFOR peacekeepers were among the injured. Over 100 UNMIK policemen were injured. 17 Serbian "religious buildings" (churches, religious administrative buildings, and buildings that were part of church complexes) were damaged.

NATO KFOR peacekeepers also announced that KFOR was "searching for evidence" to help determine who instigated the violence. So far, KFOR and UNMIK have arrested over 200 people.
