GNJILANE -- Police in Kosovo have confirmed that an explosive device was thrown at a Serbian Orthodox church in Gnjilane.

The bomb, however, did not explode on impact, leaving only a black trace on the wall of the St. Nikola church, a Kosovo Police Service (SPC) spokesman in the area told journalists.

KFOR, UNMIK police and KPS came out in force to block the part of the town where the church is located.

Serb sources in town say that two Molotov cocktails were in fact thrown at the Orthodox temple.
