UN police arrest suspects in last year's murder of Kosovo Albanian family

Police serving with the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) have arrested several suspects in connection with last year's murderous attack on a Kosovo Albanian family in Glogovac.

The arrests "resulted from investigations ongoing since the attack on 20 August 2001," UNMIK Officer Paul Hamlin told reporters on Saturday, referring to the crime against the Hajra family which resulted in the deaths of Mr. Hajra, his wife and three of his four children. "We believe we have found those responsible," he added.

UNMIK police arrested eight men, including three members of the Kosovo Protection Corps. All those arrested are now in detention and will be processed through the judicial system, according to Mr. Hamlin, who said follow-on searches were continuing in a number of locations.
