    PRISHTINA, Jan 25 (KIC) - The President of the Republic of Kosova Ibrahim Rugova received today (Monday) in Prishtina the U.S. envoy for Kosova, Christopher Hill.

    Ambassador Hill briefed President Rugova on the last week's Contact Group meeting in London, in which the situation in Kosova was addressed.

    The President and the U.S. envoy discuses about the most recent developments in Kosova - which they agreed were worrisome and dangerous - and the steps that should be taken to de-escalate the situation and speed up the political process in pursuit of a political solution to the Kosova issue, Rugova's office said.

    PRISHTINA, Jan 25 (KIC) - Five Albanians, including a woman and two children, were killed by Serbian police in Rakovin& village of Gjakova on Sunday evening, sources said.

    The Albanians were travelling on a tractor, when they were shot near the bridge of the Rakovin& village on the Gjakova-Klina roadway, LDK sources in Gjakova said.

    Two men, a woman, and two children, aged 10 and 12, respectively, were killed, LDK sources said, adding that they were supposed to be members of the Kelmendi family of Rakovin& village and Kurti family of C&rmjan village of Gjakova.

    The bodies of the killed Albanians were lying in the scene of the crime until 15:20 hrs today (Monday), when police took them to the Gjakova morgue.

    An 11 member Albanian refugee family was killed last summer in central Kosova when a Serb shell hit the tractor.

    PRISHTINA, Jan 25 (KIC) - Serbian police and paramilitary forces have been reported continuing their campaign of terror against Albanians all over Kosova.

    A few days ago, Serb police brutalized Dr. Muhamet Ademi, a specialist physician with the medical center at Barilev& village of Prishtina. While on his way to treat a patient, the Albanian doctor was halted by Serb police in Prugovc and hit with automatic rifles' butts, being routinely called names and a obscurely accused as a 'terrorist'! Muhamet was beaten unconscious and left lying on the street, sources said.
