A 14 YEAR OLD SERB GIRL WOUNDED IN A BOMB ATTACK
Kosovska Vitina, February 20, 2002
A fourteen year old Serb girl Sonja Tajic was wounded in a hand grenade attack in the courtyard of her house in the southeastern Kosovo town of Vitina. The attackers have not been yet indentified and the UNMIK police investigation is ongoing. The Serb National Council of Kosovo and Metohija strongly condemned this bomb attack naming it "a wild attack of ethnic Albanian extremists against the remaining Serbs in Vitina". In Vitina town only a small part of the pre-war Serb population remains after a series of terrorist attacks perpertrated by Kosovo Albanian extremists against Serb civilians. Almost three years after the end of the war the situation of Vitina Serbs remains precarious. The Serbs live in constant fear of extremists who still seem to operate almost unhindered by US KFOR and UNMIK police.
