Serb house destroyed in fire.

A local Serb's house burned in a fire that broke out late Sunday in the village of Klokot, near Kosovska Vitina.

The house belonged to Milan NedeljkoviŠ, who escaped unharmed.

Locals suspect that the incident was the work of arsonists.

Villager Trajan TrajkoviŠ told KiM Radio that the fire broke out around 11 p.m, adding that the NedeljkoviŠ family moved to their old house because, located in "a better protected part of the village."

"This is the second attack in just one week and we feel very insecure and request the protection of KFOR, more frequent patrols in the village, and the setting up of checkpoints," TrajkoviŠ said.

A week ago, in the same village, unidentified gunmen opened fire on a store owned by local Serb Bora SpasiŠ. Although a dozen people were inside the store at the time of the attack, no one was injured.
