A car bomb explosion in the centre of Pristina today killed one person and injured four others, the United Nations mission in Kosovo reported.

"This is an outrage," said Mr. Hans Haekkerup, head of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). "I am deeply saddened by the continued violence in Kosovo, despite our best efforts to bring peace and security to all people."

Mr. Haekkerup said he was awaiting a full report of the investigation into the incident, which occurred near the premises occupied by the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia Committee for Cooperation with UNMIK. One of the injured was in critical conditions, UNMIK said.
