At approximately 0730 this morning, two EULEX vehicles, carrying six staff members, on regular rotation from Gate 1 came under fire from unknown persons in the vicinity of Municipality Zveçan/Zvečan.
The incident resulted in the death of one EULEX staff member. Task Force Mitrovica was immediately activated and a murder investigation is ongoing. The area has been sealed off. No effort will be spared in bringing the perpetrator to justice.
EULEX condemns in the strongest terms possible this act of cowardly violence against its staff members. We appeal to the local community that anyone who has been a witness, or knows anything about this incident to come forward and contact us on 00381 38 78 5555 or 00381 38 78 5556.
EULEX extends its sincere condolence to the family of the deceased.
