Kosovo Serb politician killed in drive-by shooting

The murder of the Serb politician in the North strains relations between Kosovo and Serbia

Oliver Ivanovic, a prominent Kosovo Serb politician, was killed in a brazen drive-by shooting on Tuesday that could reignite ethnic tensions in the region.

"Serbs are more afraid of Serbs than Albanians", Ivanovic - a rare Kosovo Serb in that he spoke Albanian - said at the time.

According to the minister, many Ivanovic's friends who spoke with him lately noticed that he seemed anxious.

The doctors said Ivanovic had received at least five gunshot wounds to his upper torso.

It threw into question what a voice could sound like in that context of Rock. "I never imagined that.it would become a big song". "No further details are available at this time", Holmes said, adding that the singer's family was "devastated" by the news.

He said someone had dumped a burnt-out Opel Astra vehicle nearby to act as a red herring.

"I call on all Kosovo's justice institutions - especially now that police, prosecutors, and courts are integrated - to investigate this incident swiftly and professionally, and bring the perpetrators to justice", Delawie said. Serbia does not recognize the independence of its former province and the killing is likely to raise tensions between ethnic Albanians and minority Serbs in the region.

Vucic called an emergency meeting of his national security council to discuss the killing, national broadcaster RTS reported.

A Kosovo court convicted Mr Ivanovic of war crimes during the 1998-99 war. The verdict was overturned in February 2017.

The agenda included issues related to application of the agreements reached on establishing a commonwealth of Serbian municipalities, freedom of movement, integrated control over border checkpoints on the administrative line between Kosovo and Serbia, justice, energy sector.

Answering a question on how the assassination of Oliver Ivanovic could influence the dialog with Pristina, Juric said: "What can we talk about now?"

According to her, "NATO fully supports the EU-facilitated dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, and calls for this dialogue to continue as soon as possible". A year ago his auto was found burned.
