US Soldier Dies in Accident in Kosovo
A US soldier from NATO's international peacekeeping force in Kosovo died in an accident, KFOR said in a statement Saturday.
"A US KFOR service member died yesterday from injuries sustained while performing an operation in Multinational Brigade East," the part of Kosovo under control of the Americans.
"The death was not a result of hostile action," the statement said.
"It is an accident. It is related to his daily duties," Sergeant Pat McGuire, a KFOR spokesperson said.
US forces are in charge of the buffer zone between Kosovo and Serbia, the same area where violent confrontations between separatist Albanians and Serbian police have taken place in recent days -- PRISTINA (AFP)
