Dusan Milisavljevic, deputy head of the administrative office in the northern Kosovo town of Mitrovica got injured in an attack late on Friday, local police said Saturday. Milisavljevic is recovering in the hospital, authorities said.

"Masked people fired on him in northern Mitrovica while the victim D.M. in the company of his three other colleagues were leaving a bar," regional spokesman of Kosovo Police, Besim Hoti told local media. According to Hoti the attack was conducted from a running vehicle with no license plate.
