One more Orthodox church has been seriously damaged in Kosovo, said on Friday a representative of the KFOR international force in that part of Yugoslavia. Three explosions sounded at night near the church in the village of Staro Gracko, he said. The bombs were planted at the entrance. No victims have been reported. Observers say that this terrorist act coincided with the start of an election campaign of the Kosovo Serbs. The other day, the Serb coalition Return decided to participate in the November 17 parliamentary elections in Kosovo. So far, it is the only Kosovo Serbs' organisation to have announced its desire to participate. Since 1999, Albanian extremists have destroyed, or seriously damaged, over 100 Orthodox churches and convents in Kosovo.
