    This is the second attempt on his life in half a year

    PRISHTINA, Jan 10 (KIC) - Enver Maloku, head of the Kosova Information Center (KIC) was shot and seriously wounded near his home in capital Prishtina today afternoon, around 16:00 hrs.

    Mr. Maloku, in his mid-forties, was getting out of his car, when he was shot by unknown assailants who were with a black car, according to eye- witness accounts which could not be immediately confirmed.

    He was taken to the Prishtina hospital in a critical condition, with gunshot wounds in his neck and perhaps chest.

    Enver Maloku narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in early July 1998, when an unknown person shot in his direction at the entrance of his apartment in a block of flats in Kodra e Diellit neighborhood in Prishtina.

    [02] KIC Head, Enver Maloku, Assassinated in Prishtina Monday Afternoon

    PRISHTINA, Jan 10 (KIC) 18:00 CET - Enver Maloku, head of the Kosova Information Center (KIC) was shot and fatally wounded near his home in capital Prishtina today afternoon, around 16:00 hrs. He died in less than an hour in hospital, sources said.

    Mr. Maloku, in his mid-forties, father of three, was getting out of his car, when he was shot by unknown assailants, three or four people on a black car, according to eye-witness accounts which could not be immediately confirmed.

    He was taken to the Prishtina hospital in a critical condition, with gunshot wounds in his neck and perhaps on the chest.

    Enver Maloku narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in early July 1998, when an unknown person shot in his direction at the entrance of his apartment in a block of flats in Kodra e Diellit neighborhood in Prishtina. The authorities had not investigated the assassination attempt.

    Enver Maloku was a prominent journalist with the cultural programme of the Radio and Television of Prishtina (RTP) broadcasting in Albanian till it was closed by the Serbian regime in July 1990.

    Maloku has worked with the KIC since its foundation in 1991, and been head of this singular Kosovar news agency since 1993.

    Since last year, Maloku was a member of the top executive, the 55- member General Council of the Democratic League of Kosova (LDK), the major political force in Kosova.

    Throughout the 1990s, Mr. Maloku has been one of the leading political journalists in Kosova. He was a committed journalist, articulating in a powerful way the independence bid of the Albanian people of Kosova on an institutional and democratic platform.

    The Kosova Information Center will sorely miss Enver Maloku - a man of integrity.
