UN Envoy To Kosovo Condemns Grenade Attack On President's Home
The senior United Nations envoy to Kosovo has condemned the hand grenade attack early today on the Pristina home of Kosovo's President Ibrahim Rugova.
Harri Holkeri, the Secretary-General's Special Representative for Kosovo, described the attack as "outrageous and cowardly" in comments delivered to Mr. Rugova on his behalf by Charles Brayshaw, Principal Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General.
Mr. Rugova has been briefed by staff from the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo ( http://www.unmikonline.org/index.html UNMIK) on the police investigation into the grenade attack, UNMIK said in a http://www.unmikonline.org/press/2004/pressr/pr1136.pdf statement. The mission has also discussed with him security procedures to protect senior Kosovo government officials.
UNMIK said it took the attack "very seriously
and will thoroughly investigate this and other extremist
actions, which undermine security for the people of Kosovo."
