      PRIS(TINA -- An ethnic Albanian terrorist group used Facebook late on
      Sunday to call for the Serb Orthodox church in ?akovica in Kosovo to be
      destroyed.

      This is according to Pris(tina's Albanian language daily Koha Ditore,
      which writes on Monday that the Albanian National Army (ANA), which
      previously announced "a mobilization" of its members
      <http://www.b92.net/eng/news/politics-article.php?yyyy=2013&mm=01&dd=15&nav_id=84159>,
      called on Albanians to attack the church "last night at around 20:00
      CET, after the monument to UCPMB was removed (in Pres(evo)".

      According to the report, the Facebook post said that the church should
      be destroyed so as to "hit Serbs where it hurts them the most".

      ?akovica Mayor ?okica Stanojevic' told Tanjug today that ethnic
      Albanians gathered last night to protest, while a part of them attempted
      to attack the SPC monastery of the Ascension of the Holy Mother of God.

      The attack was prevented by "the police and international forces", he said.

      Four nuns are currently in the monastery, which was previously burned
      down in March 2004, but has since been rebuilt.

      "The monastery is now being secured by numerous Kosovo police and KFOR
      members, posted inside and outside," said Stanojevic', and explained
      that the situation "calmed down after 22:00 CET".

      According to Koha Ditore, the police "dispersed a group of some ten
      young men who were gathered in front of the Orthodox church in ?akovica".

      The police in this town are yet to issue any statement regarding the
      incident.
