Political candidate victim of shooting


A parliamentary candidate from the party of Kosovo's Prime Minister Hashim Thaci has been shot dead, one week after an inconclusive general election in the tiny Balkan nation. It was not clear whether there was any political motive for the shooting of Elvis Pista, pictured, who was killed as he left a restaurant in the southern town of Rahovec with his wife and some friends.
