UN "doesn't know" reason for police clash in Kosovo


PRISTINA, Serbia and Montenegro, April 18 (Reuters) - United Nations police in Kosovo are holding four Jordanian members of the force following a gunbattle with U.S. police in which two American women prison officers and a Jordanian male were killed.

Police sources at the scene of Saturday's firefight inside the U.N. compound in the northern city of Mitrovica said hostility over Iraq or the Middle East had sparked the fight.

A U.N. spokesman denied that the shooting had been preceded by a verbal clash. But a U.S. policeman who declined to be named said the attack had been "organised".

Whatever the cause, a lethal firefight is unprecedented between two of the 30 or so national contingents of the Kosovo U.N. law enforcement mission, which numbers some 3,500 officers.

1. The media here is not reporting it but the reason was the slaying of the
Hamas leader by Israel. You have to go to foreign news sources to get the story.

2. The first American deaths in Kosovo
Way to go F**ko. "On his watch" applies here as well as 9/11.
