ETHNIC ALBANIANS SUSPECTED IN ATTACK ON SERB CAFE

Gunmen believed to be ethnic Albanians sprayed automatic gunfire and hurled grenades into a Serb cafe in this southwestern Kosovo town, killing a Serb and wounding eight others, officials said Saturday.

Following the Friday night attack, more than 100 angry Serbs gathered Saturday afternoon in Orahovac's town square, demanding that German and Dutch peacekeeping troops protect them better.

The Serbs refused to talk to reporters, shaking fists at them and screaming, "Albanian spies, go away!" They insisted the attackers were ethnic Albanians, though none had been arrested.

Twelve Serbs were in the cafe when the attack took place, according to a statement by the NATO-led Kosovo Force. Peacekeepers rushed to the scene, but the two gunmen fled in the darkness.
