Skopje, July 16, 2013

An emigrant has remained killed while three others have remained injured during an exchange of fire taken place this morning in the road linking Kumanovo to Tabanoc near the FYR Macedonian-Serbian border.

The incident has taken place around 2 am near the border with Serbia, while unofficial sources say that the emigrants were from Afghanistan and Pakistan.

But, the Sector of Interior Affairs in Kumanovo said today that it will come up with more details about the incident. Sources within this Sector say that after bringing emigrants in this area of the country, smugglers have opened fire against them, but this is not yet the final version. Two of the injured people have been admitted to the Health Center of Kumanovo. Due to the serious injuries, the third man who remained wounded has been sent to the Hospital of Skopje for a more intense treatment. /ibna/
