Kosovo Albanian convicted of murder extradited to Czech Republic


Albania has extradited a fugitive Kosovo Albanian who was sentenced to 12 years in prison in the Czech Republic for murdering his compatriot in Prague in 1997, the Ministry of Justice announced on Tuesday. The shooting was part of a blood feud between two family clans. Shukri Hoti, who was reportedly a member of the Kosovo Liberation Army, shot a member of another family, Hilmi Xaja, from a car in the centre of Prague. The two families reconciled in Kosovo in May 1998 in a ceremony attended by 500 people.
