Former Kosovo Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj
According to a spokesperson for Kosovo Police Service (KPC), Refki Morina, today around 15:10, alone the highway between Peja and Gjakova, near the village of Raushiq, there was an assassination attempt in which two people were wounded. Sources from the Hospital of Peja have said that one of the wounded has died and he is Enver Haradinaj, the brother of former Prime Minister, Ramush Haradinaj.

He was currently a student at Prishtina University. Before he started attending the University, he was a Kosova Protection Corps member. Ever since the end of the war on Kosovo, there have been constant threats against the Haradinaj family. There are rumors in the Dukagjini region of Kosovo that the Haradinaj family is a target of a large drug ring, lead by a Sadikaj family. Police have said they have no suspect at this time. During the war in Kosovo the Haradinaj family was a major supporter of Kosova Liberation Army. Two more brothers, Luan Haradinaj and Shkellzen Haradinaj, were killed while fighting Serbian forces. Another brother, Daut Haradinaj, is serving jail time in Kosovo for allegedly participating in murdering Serbs and other Albanian collaborators during the war.
