Prominent Kosovo Serb Politician Assassinated

Prominent Kosovo Serb politician Oliver Ivanovic was killed in a brazen drive-by shooting on Tuesday that could reignite ethnic tensions in the region. The assassination of Ivanovic—who was facing a retrial on war crimes charges over the 1990s Kosovo conflict—occurred on the very day that Belgrade and Pristina resumed talks on normalizing ties after a hiatus of more than a year, AFP reported. Ivanovic, 64, was shot dead by gunmen firing from a car as he arrived at the headquarters of his party in the flashpoint town of Mitrovica at about 8:15 am (0715 GMT), according to police. European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini spoke with Thaci and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and “called on all sides to show calm and restraint and allow the rule of law and justice to take its course,” a statement from her office said.Police said they found a burnt-out car that was presumably used in th4e shooting.
