Kosovo UN envoy condemns latest round of bomb attacks on parked cars

Steven Schook, the Secretary-General’s Principal Deputy Special Representative, issued a statement today in the provincial capital, Pristina, following the attacks in Gjilan/Gnjilane and Ferizaj/Uroševac on Friday and Saturday nights.He said the two explosions were the apparent result of bombs placed under parked vehicles. While the vehicles were badly damaged, and several nearby vehicles were also damaged, no one was injured.Mr. Schook said “this kind of violence goes against what the people of Kosovo want and are working toward at this important time in the status process.
