PRISTINA- A European Union police officer in Kosovo was shot dead on Thursday in a northern, mainly Serb region where tensions are rising over a fragile accord between the Balkan country and its former master Serbia.

It appeared to mark the first fatality suffered by the EU mission, known as EULEX, since it deployed in 2008 after majority-Albanian Kosovo declared independence from Serbia with the backing of the West.

The officer, whom EULEX did not identify, was killed when two EU vehicles "came under fire from unknown persons" at around 7.30 a.m. (0530 GMT) near Zvecan, a town in Kosovo's predominantly Serb north abutting Serbia, EULEX said in a statement.
