Grenade attack on Kosovo leader

A grenade has been thrown at the residence of Kosovo President Ibrahim Rugova, according to officials. Windows were shattered but no-one was seriously hurt in the explosion, though Mr Rugova and his family were said to be in the house at the time. Police said the grenade was apparently thrown at the house from a passing car just before 0600 local time (0500 GMT). Mr Rugova is a moderate ethnic Albanian leader who led passive resistance to Serbian rule in the 1990s. This is believed to be the first attack against Mr Rugova, 59, who was elected president by the provincial parliament in 2002. No arrests have been made since the attack, in the Velanija suburb of the Kosovo capital Pristina, and no-one has claimed to have carried it out. Full Story
