Serb house in Kosovo bombed

KOSOVSKA MITROVICA -- Nobody has been injured in yesterday’s blast in northern Kosovska Mitrovica, UNMIK officials say.

“One of the two explosive devices thrown into the backyard of a house belonging to Branislav lekić and Srećko Antić in northern Kosovska Mitrovica detonated, while KFOR special unit recovered and destroyed the second device,” UNMIK’s regional spokesperson Larry Miller told B92.

“The detonation caused minor material damage,”Miller confirmed.

Branislav lekić and Srećko Antić are Serb residents of an ethnically mixed Bošnjačka mahala district in northern Kosovska Mitrovica.

At the time of the explosion Branislav Lekić was home alone, while his wife and two children were away.

Lekić explained to the B92 reporter as to the motif behind the attack saying that “the bombs followed a day-long protest of his Albanian neighbors who complained against the construction works on their new Serbian neighbor's house.”

The UNMIK spokesperson refused to speculate on the possible reasons behind the bombing attack.
