KOSOVSKA MITROVICA, LIPLJAN -- A Serb woman was seriously injured last night in northern Kosovska Mitrovica, agencies report.

27-year-old Milica Devic from Zvecan was attacked and stabbed several times in the stomach by unknown assailants in an alley near the Red Cross building where she worked.

She sustained serious injuries and was transferred to Kosovska Mitrovica hospital's intensive care unit.

After the attack, the assailants fled in the direction of Bosnjacka Mahala.

Kosovo Police Service investigated the scene. Its officers said they had recovered the knife used in the attack.

In a separate incident in Kosovo yesterday, a group of Albanian high school students stoned Lipljan's Braca Aleksic elementary school.

The Albanian students took to stoning the Serb school while returning from classes they attend in another part of Lipljan.
