UNMIK extradites cop killer to Macedonia

Zaim Alili, who in addition to his conviction is wanted on several other felony charges, escaped to Kosovo after a clash with Macedonian police.

Macedonian MUP spokesman Ivo Kotevski told reporters Saturday that Alili was convicted for the September 10 murder of a police chief in the village of Matejce, Kumanovo municipality, and intent to murder another officer.

Alili was wounded in a shoot-out with Macedonian police, but managed to escape to Kosovo, where he was arrested by the Kosovo Police Service (KPS).

He was first sent to hospital, and later to the Dubarava prison.
