Belgrade-based Blic newspaper reports that ethnic Albanians shot at the Serbs from a moving car, and that bullet casings were found at the scene.

According to this, the attackers escaped, "and a search for the car is currently under way".

There have been no reports of injuries.

The attack in the Serb-dominant north comes in the wake incidents yesterday in the town of Peć, where a Montenegrin citizen and a Bosniak (Muslim) man - a native of the nearby village of Vitomirci who now resides in central Serbia - were also assaulted.

The victims were identified as Žarko Bošković and Emil Lečina. Lečina sustained serious injuries to his head.

Lečina's brother told journalists on Friday that he would be transported from Priština to Belgrade to receive medical treatment after his condition deteriorated overnight. Lečina will likely lose sight in one eye, his brother said.

Meanwhile, Kosovo police, KPS, say they at this time do not know the motive for the attack, and have no suspects in custody. It was said that Lečina "drove to Peć in a Novi Sad license plates car" to visit his family there.

The Montenegrin citizen was attacked in a separate incident "when two men approached his car, asked him to roll down the window, and then hit him in the eye".

Both suspects are now in custody, Beta news agency reported.
