Representatives of the Skopje police have reported that Albanian militants shot at Macedonian security forces on Tuesday in Tetovo and its suburbs. The units were shot at from regions under the control of the officially disbanded National Liberation Army. The Nato mission in Macedonia has confirmed the incidents. Meanwhile, the Macedonian parliament is continuing to debate the holding of a referendum on constitutional amendments. Representatives of Albanian parties and the Macedonian Social-Democrat Union have argued against a referendum, instead calling for the strict implementation of peace agreements signed by the leaders of Albanian and Macedonian parties. Deputies from the All-Macedonian Revolutionary Party, led by Prime Minister Ljubco Georgievski, have expressed their support for a national vote. Parliament has until October 5th to make its final decision on the constitutional amendments, which would give greater rights to ethnic Albanians.
