Kosovo: Police Disable Home-Made Bomb At UN HQ

Kosovo Police Disable Home-Made Bomb Outside UN Headquarters Compound

Kosovo Police Service officers today discovered and helped to disable an improvised explosive device outside the headquarters compound of the UN mission in the province (UNMIK).

The makeshift bomb was found adjacent to apartment buildings occupied by Kosovo residents in the early hours of 6 March. With the assistance of multinational troops (KFOR), the device was disarmed without causing damage or injuries.

Harri Holkeri, the Secretary-General's Special Representative to the province, condemned the attempted attack and voiced opposition to extremists who continue to threaten the people of Kosovo with these actions.

He also assured the public that together with the ongoing police investigation, additional security measures were being implemented to prevent future attacks of this nature.
