PRISTINA - The father of the gunman who shot dead two US airmen on a US Army bus at Frankfurt airport said on Thursday that he was shocked by the attack, and apologized to the victims' families and the American people.
"I am still in shock; I can not believe what has happened," Murat Uka told Reuters by phone from his home in Germany. "I am really, really sorry about what has happened."
"I express my deep condolences," said Uka, whose voice betrayed his emotion.
Uka said he regretted that US airmen were the victims of the attack, in which two other service personnel were wounded.
"The American people are the best friends of Albanians," he said.
