Ethnic Albanian shot dead on Serbia-Kosovo border

PRISTINA, Apr 6, 2000 -- (AFP) An ethnic Albanian has been shot dead in the Serbian village of Dobrosin close to the border with Kosovo, a spokesman for NATO's peace-keeping force in the province announced Thursday.

The man was apparently shot in the head by a sniper on Tuesday, spokesman Russell Berg declared.

"Four Albanians came across the check-point in a white Mitsubishi," said Berg, adding that one of the four had been shot in the head and was rushed to the Gnjilane hospital in eastern Kosovo, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
