    At least 13 people have been injured in a shootout between criminal groups near the center of Kosovo's capital, the republic's police force said on Wednesday.

    BELGRADE, March 19 (RIA Novosti) - At least 13 people have been injured in a shootout between criminal groups near the center of Kosovo's capital, the republic's police force said on Wednesday. 

    Police said four suspects were detained after the clash on Tuesday evening in Pristina. The incident is being investigated.

    Albanian organized crime groups have retained a strong presence in the province since the breakup of Yugoslavia.

    Kosovo unilaterally declared its independence from Serbia a month ago. Since then, frequent Serb protests have thrown the northern town of Mitrovica into turmoil. On Monday a Ukrainian policeman was killed in a clash with rioters after UN police wrested control of a court house from Serbs.
