MITROVICA, Kosovo, March 18 (Reuters) – A Ukrainian police officer serving with the United Nations in Kosovo died of injuries sustained in violent clashes with Serbs on Monday, Ukraine’s interior ministry said, confirming earlier reports.
The number of Ukrainians injured in the clashes, the worst since Kosovo’s Albanian majority declared independence from Serbia a month ago, has risen to 20 from the 14 that were earlier announced, the ministry said on Tuesday.
It said the officer died late on Monday “after a surgical operation, from multiple injuries”. It had said before that some 50-60 grenades had been levelled at the forces.
