A man was killed early Monday in Kosovo by a grenade that police believe he had detonated.
Officers found the 42-year-old Serb man with serious injuries outside of a restaurant in the northern, Serb-dominated part of Kosovska Mitrovica, a police statement said. The victim died later in the hospital, it said.
Police said the explosion was caused by an M-75 hand grenade, detonated in very close proximity to the victim.
"Investigators believe the victim initiated the detonation," the statement said. "There are no indications that this was a suicide," police spokesman Larry Miller said, adding that police were investigating.
Kosovo, formally a province of Serbia-Montenegro, has been administered by United Nations since mid-1999, reports the AP.
