Pristina's everyday life - anarchy, violence, murders
Sofia, Oct 12 (Tanjug) - The member of the U.N. mission to Kosovo and Metohija who was killed in central Pristina late on Monday is a Bulgarian national, the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency (BTA) quoted early Tuesday unidentified officials of the U.N. police force in Serbia's southern province as saying.

It was expected that the UN official representative in Pristina would inform the world publicity on the identity of the person killed by so far unknown terrorist who shot the member of the U.N. mission to Kosovo and Metohija on Monday around 21:00 in Majke Tereze St. while talking with an "casual passing by" female Albanian. However, Kouchner stated only that the killed person was talking in his native, Bulgarian language so the Albanian who has firs beaten and than killed him thought that the Bulgarian American was a Serb?

The victim was attacked the same day he had arrived in Pristina by an unidentified terrorist who soon disappeared in the crowd, BTA quoted the officials as saying.
