PRISTINA, Yugoslavia — A senior member of a Kosovo Albanian party was wounded in a drive-by shooting, the latest in a series of attacks on officials of the moderate group, U.N. police said Saturday.
The man, a member of the Democratic League of Kosovo, or LDK, led by veteran ethnic Albanian politician Ibrahim Rugova, was shot Friday afternoon, said U.N. police spokesman Dmitry Kaportsev.
"He was shot and wounded in the left shoulder, as he drove in his car, by an unknown person who shot at him from a vehicle," Kaportsev said. "His condition was reported to be serious but stable."
An LDK official identified the victim as Fetah Rudi, head of the party branch in the town of Malisevo and a former member of the now-disbanded Kosovo Liberation Army, which fought Serbian rule from 1998 to 1999. Kosovo is a province of Serbia, the main Yugoslav republic.
