Kosovo: Local elections
test relations with Serbia

Gunman alleges he acted
alone in LAX shooting


President Jahjaga
speaks out against
PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) -
Hard-line Serbs in northern
Kosovo intimidated would-be
voters and were suspected of
attacking a polling station dur-
ing local elections Sunday. The
actions underscored Kosovo's
strained relations with Serbia,
even as both states seek closer
ties to the European Union.
It was the first time voters
in all of Kosovo were choos-
ing local councilors and mayors
since the country seceded from
Serbia in 2008.
The participation in the
election of minority Serbs in
Kosovo was being watched care-
fully. The integration of Serbs
into Kosovarpolitical life is akey
element of an EU-brokered deal
between Serbia and Kosovo that

seeks to settle their disputes and
unlock EU funds.
The Serb hard-liners' tactics,
however, appeared to suppress
voter turnout and raised con-
cerns that Serbia had not ful-
filled its pledge to stop fueling
defiance among Serbs in Kosovo,
especially in the north, where
they dominate the population.
Kosovo President Atifete Jah-
jaga warned Serb hard-liners not
to undermine the central gov-
ernment in Pristina.
"Such acts will be met with
swift response of the security
mechanisms in an attempt to
establish rule of law, a necessity
in this part of the country," Jah-
jaga said in a statement.
The comments came after a
group of some 30 masked men
barged -into the polling station
in the late afternoon, smashing
windows and tearing up voting
Associated Press footage
showed police sealing off the


area. It also showed members
of the Organization for Secu-
rity and Cooperation in Europe,
which helped organize the vote
in the north, leaving the polling
station in their vehicles. The sta-
tign was later closed.
Serbia's prime minister, Ivica
Dacic, urged Serbs in Kosovo's
north to defy the threats and
the anti-election campaign and
cast their ballots. He said par-
ticipation in the election is in
the interest of the Serb people in
"Let us once do something
that is in our interest and not
in the interest of our enemies,"
Dacic said. "The fate of Serbs in
Kosovo should be in their own
hands, and not (Kosovo Prime
Minister Hashim) Thaci's or the
About 1.8 million voters are
entitled to vote in 39 munici-
palities and elect mayors and
local councilors. Voter turn-
out in Kosovo stood at 46
percent, excluding the Serb-
dominated north, as polls closed
at 1800GMT.
An AP reporter witnessed
Serbs crowding outside poll-
ing stations in the northern city
of Mitrovica to discourage fel-
low Serbs from voting. Posters
describing participation in elec-
tions as treason also have sprung
up in Serb-majority areas.
Some Serbs fear the vote vali-
dates the secession of Kosovo,
which declared independence
from Serbia in 2008. The U.S.
and the majority of the 28 EU
countries recognize the new
state, but Serbia rejects Kosovo's
independence, as do many Serbs
now living in Kosovo.
"I can't vote in these elec-
tions. To me these are foreign
elections," said Zeljko Vuckovic,
a Serb resident of Mitrovica.
Another Serb, Radomir Milic,
was one of the few voters who
responded to Serbia's call to
elect their leaders in an interna-
tionally backed process.
"I vote for a better life because
if we do not vote we cannot sur-
vive here," Milic said.

Motives for attack
remain unclear as
FBI investigation
gunman charged in the deadly
shooting at Los Angeles Inter-
national Airport lay bloodied
and handcuffed on the floor of
Terminal 3 after being gunned
down by police, but he replied
to critical questions that helped
authorities lock down the scene.
Paul Ciancia, 23, was hauled
away moments later on a stretch-
er and later heavily sedated for
medical reasons, but not before
he told investigators he had acted
alone when he opened fire in the
terminal, a law enforcement offi-
cial who has been briefed on the
investigation told The Associ-
ated Press on Sunday.
Ciancia, an unemployed
motorcycle mechanic who
recently moved to Los Ange-
les from the small, blue-collar
town of Pennsville, N.J., also told
police a friend had dropped him
at LAX on Friday just moments
before he shot a Transportation
Security Administration officer
at point-blank range and wound-
ed three other people, including
two more TSA workers.
Officials do not believe that
the friend knew of the shooter's
plans. Ciancia arrived at the air-
port in a black Hyundai and was
not a ticketed passenger.
Ciancia was under 24-hour
armed guard at the hospital Sun-
day after being shot four times,
the official said. He was sedated
for medical reasons, the official
said, adding that one gunshot to
the mouth blew a molar out of his
Ciancia is facing charges of
murder of a federal officer and
committing violence at an inter-
national airport. The charges
could qualify him for the death
penalty. It wasn't immediately
clear when he would make a first
court appearance given his med-

ical condition.
In court documents and inter-
views, authorities spelled out a
chilling chain of events, saying
Ciancia walked into the airport,
pulled a .223-caliber assault rifle
from his duffel bag and fired
repeatedly at 39-year-old TSA
officer Gerardo I. Hernandez. He
turned back to see Hernandez
move and returned to finish him
off, according to surveillance
video reviewed by investigators.
He then fired on two other uni-
formed TSA employees and an
airline passenger, who all were
wounded, as he moved methodi-
cally throughthe security check-
point before airport police shot
him as panicked travelers hid in
stores and restaurants.
It wasn't clear why Ciancia
targeted TSA officers, but what
he left behind indicated he was
willing to kill any of them that
crossed his path, authorities
The shooter's duffel bag con-
tained a handwritten letter
signed by Ciancia stating he'd
"made the conscious decision to
try to kill" multiple TSA employ-
ees and that he wanted to "instill
fear in their traitorous minds,"
FBI Agent in Charge David L.
Bowdich said.
"Black, white, yellow, brown,
I don't discriminate," the note
read, according to a paraphrase
by a law enforcement official
briefed on the investigation. The
official spoke on the condition of
anonymity because he was not
authorized to speak publicly.
The screed also mentioned
"fiat currency" and "NWO,"
possible references to the New
World Order, a conspiracy theory
that foresees a totalitarian one-
world government.
The letter also talked about
"how easy it is to get a gun into
the airport," the law enforce-
ment official said.
When searched, the suspect
had five 30-round magazines,
and his bag contained hundreds
more rounds in boxes.
U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul,
R-Texas, chairman of the House

Homeland Security Committee,
said on CNN's State of the Union
on Sunday that Ciancia's actions
show how difficult it is to pro-
tect travelers at a massive airport
such as LAX.
The terminals are open and
easily accessible to thousands of
people who arrive at large slid-
ing glass doors via a broad ring
road that fronts the facility and
is designed to move people along
"It's like a shopping mall out-
side the perimeter, it's almost
like an open shopping mall,"
McCaul said.
The FBI has served a search
warrant on a Sun Valley resi-
dence where Ciancia lived, Ari
Dekofsky, a spokeswoman for
the FBI's Los Angeles field office,
said Sunday. Agents are still
interviewing people, she said.
Authorities believe the rifle
used in the shooting was pur-
chased in Los Angeles. Ciancia
also had two additional hand-
guns that he purchased in Los
Angeles, but which weren't at the
crime scene, a law enforcement
official said. The official, who
has been briefed on the inves-
tigation, was not authorized to
speak publicly. and requested
The purchases themselves
appeared legal, although author-
ities were still tracing them, and
it's unclear ifthe shooter used his
own identification or someone
else's, the official said.
"He didn't buy them on the
street. He didn'tbuythem on the
Internet," the official said. "He
bought them from a licensed gun
dealer - the rifle and the two
Hernandez, a three-year vet-
eran of the TSA, moved to the
U.S. from El Salvador at age 15,
married his sweetheart, Ana, on
Valentine's Day in 1998 and had
two children.
The other two TSA officers
wounded in the attack have been
released from the hospital. On
Sunday, the TSA identified them
as James Speer, 54, and Tony
Grigsby, 36.
