Macedonian Government Buildings Hit by Grenades

Macedonian police patrolled roads into the capital and searched cars on Friday after attackers fired grenades at three government buildings overnight. Nobody was injured in the attacks on the main government building, the courthouse and the central army barracks at around 10 p.m. local time on Thursday. Witnesses said the grenades were fired from a moving car. “Apart from a few shattered windows on the courthouse there is no damage,” a police spokesman said. “We don’t want to speculate on the motives or who the attackers might be, but we are engaged in an intensive investigation.” He said no one had claimed responsibility for the attack, one of the most serious incidents since an ethnic conflict between Macedonians and ethnic Albanians ended in 2001. On Wednesday two policemen were briefly kidnapped by a group of ethnic Albanian gunmen, and on Thursday a bomb exploded on railway tracks north of Skopje. Full Story
