STRPCE - Yesterday at about 4:00 p.m. in the village of Doganovici on the road from Urosevac to Strpce unknown persons stoned a bus owned by the private transportation company Gorce from Strpce, which was carrying 55 Serb passengers at the time.


The bus sustained significant physical damage, bus driver Novak Nedeljkovic told SRNA.


He emphasized that immediately after the stoning the attackers sought shelter in the nearby woods and that, despite the filed report, the Kosovo Police Service had given up on the chase.


This is the fourth time a bus owned by this company has been stoned in Doganovici, where two Serbs from the municipality of Lipljan were killed slightly over one year ago.


In the village of Brod, located a few hundred meters from the site where the bus was stoned, the Kosovo Police Service arrested two Serbs from Dobrotin near Lipljan four nights ago and after torturing and inflict injuries upon them, released them after filing charges.


Following this incident the Strpce Serb National Community advised that security was being looked after "by extremists wearing the uniforms of the Kosovo Police Service".
