Gun battle in ethnic Albanian region deepens Macedonian crisis

Relatives of killed policeman Samoilovski mourn next to his coffin covered in Macedonian flag inside a churc in town of TetovoBy Matt Robinson and Fatos Bytyci KUMANOVO, Macedonia (Reuters) – Macedonia said on Sunday its police had wiped out a group of ethnic Albanian "terrorists" in a day-long gun battle that left at least 22 people dead at a moment of deep political crisis in the former Yugoslav republic. NATO, which dragged Macedonia from the brink of civil war in 2001, called for a "transparent investigation" of what went on when heavily armed police entered a mainly Albanian neighborhood in the northern town of Kumanovo before dawn on Saturday. The government said eight police and 14 members of an "armed group" had been killed in the ensuing gun battle, describing the gunmen as former rebel commanders from neighboring Kosovo, which broke from Serbia in war in 1999 and inspired an ethnic Albanian insurgency in Macedonia two years later.
