UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has strongly condemned Thursday's deadly attack on a convoy of the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX).

One EULEX staff member was killed in the incident, which occurred in northern Kosovo.

The Secretary-General called for a swift and thorough investigation to bring the perpetrators to justice, noting that the UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) is providing its full support in this regard.

Mr. Ban also stressed the importance for all concerned to cooperate with the investigation and ensure security and freedom of movement of EULEX and other international presences in Kosovo.
