Balkans: April 18, 2004


A Jordanian police officer assigned to UNMIK in Kosovo opened fire on a group of international corrections officers (prison guards). The incident occurred at a prison/detention center in the town of Kosovo-Mitrovica. Apparently the Jordanian attacker was standing with a larger group of Jordanian policemen when he began shooting at the corrections officers. Two Americans were killed (both women), the Jordanian attacker was killed, and eleven other policemen, (two Turks, one Austrian, and eight more Americans) were wounded. The UN identified the Jordanian as Ahmed Mustafa Ibrahim Ali.
