One Kosovo policeman was killed and another wounded in a shooting in a village in northern Kosovo on Sunday morning, Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti was quoted as saying by Reuters.
“As of now, our police force continues to be fired with weapons of various calibers,” Kurti said in a Facebook post, describing the incident as a terrorist act.

“The attackers are professionals, wear masks and are heavily armed.”
Tensions in Kosovo, the former Serbian province, have risen since clashes in May when more than 90 NATO peacekeepers and around 50 Serbian protesters were injured in northern Kosovo.
Ethnic Albanians represent more than 90 percent of the population in Kosovo, and Serbs are the majority only in its northern part, where the creation of an association of municipalities with a predominantly Serbian population is planned.

Last week, EU-led talks to normalize relations between the former enemies from the Kosovo war stalled. The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, blamed Kurti for not yet establishing the association of municipalities with a predominantly Serbian population, which would have given them greater autonomy.
