Blast in Kosovo's capital kills 2

A powerful blast ripped through Kosovo's capital early Monday, killing two and injuring 10 others, officials said.

The explosion happened around 2:30 a.m. (0030 GMT) in a shopping mall in the center of Pristina. Police said the explosion was caused by an explosive device.

All the victims were taken to a local hospital, police spokesman Veton Elshani said.

"We do not know the motive for the moment and we do not know who would stand behind this explosion," Elshani said.

He said that most of the victims were injured by a concrete block falling after the blast. It was not immediately clear what was the target of the attack.

Last month police ransacked one of the shops in the mall and arrested several ethnic Albanians suspected of involvement in the shooting of a policeman.

Kosovo is formally a part of Serbia, but has been under U.N. and NATO control since 1999 after the alliance bombed Serb forces and ended the troops' brutal crackdown on separatist ethnic Albanians.
