Nobody was injured in the incident but substantial material damage was caused, said Nevenka Medic of the KoSSev portal.

Director of the Serbian government Office for Kosovo-Metohija (KiM) Marko Djuric fiercely condemned the attack. Djuric said that the attack once more proves that there are certain individuals in KiM who prefer an atmosphere of lynch to rule of law and freedom of expression.

He noted that attacks on the media and reporters constitute the most drastic form of anti-civilisational behaviour and such incidents can bring benefits only to those who want destabilisation of the situation in the (Serbian) province and a return to some previous periods.

I expect the investigative bodies to take a most serious attitude in the case of the attack and bring responsible individuals to justice, Djuric said as reported by the Office for KiM.
