HTV SHOWS FOOTAGE OF ARMED GROUPS IN MACEDONIA



National.

"Albanian guerillas are getting ready in the Kumanovo region", Croatian national broadcaster HTV (Hrvatska Televizija) said.

HTV showed video footage of people carrying masks on their faces, dressed in black uniforms with NLA (National Liberation Army) insignia, while patrolling near the Lipkovo Lake. The gunmen claim they carry weapons in response to armament of Serbs in this area.

"We are former fighters of the NLA. Given the fact that the Macedonian government launched an offensive against NLA members, we are obliged to take weapons in our hands and defend," group's member said.

The footage shows that Albanian guerillas are well armed. They are operating in the Kumanovo area, Lipkovo.

They claim they had nothing to do with the attack on Macedonian police patrol on 24 October near Tanusevci, when one police officer was killed and two other were injured in ambush.

The guerillas say they armed themselves because they have reliable information on armament of members of Czar Lazar Guard. The guerillas claim the Czar Lazar Guard trains the Macedonian security forces.


MD: Just, when we said that people are fearing a new conflict... The Macedonian ministry however are doubting the authenticity of the footage, but one of the men on the footage holds a newspaper dating of a recent day.
