RADUS, Macedonia, May 12 (UPI) -- Macedonian police say they killed four members of a Kosovar Albanian gang suspected of trying to smuggle large amounts of weaponry across Macedonia's borders.
Acting on a tip, police in the village of Radus on the border between Macedonia and Serbia attempted to stop a van believed to be carrying weapons when the occupants opened fire, Radio Srbija reported Wednesday.
No police were killed or injured in the 15-minute exchange of gunfire, the Macedonian International News Agency said.
Several other armed terrorists operating in and around Radusha surrendered to the police, MINA reported.
Two weeks earlier Macedonian police found four caches of weapons they allege were smuggled in by the Kosovar Albanian extremist group ONA. In an ensuing firefight, one of the group members was injured and a number of others fled to Kosovo.
Kosovo police later announced the arrests of seven suspected ONA members, Radio Srbija reported.
