Five Killed In Gun Attack On Serbian Cafe

This sort of thing doesn’t happen in other countries eh?

The wife of the attacker is among those killed in the shooting rampage and authorities believe jealousy to be the motive.

A gunman has shot five people dead and injured at least another 20 in a cafe in Serbia, police have said.
Among those killed was the wife of the attacker.
The man "entered the cafe and opened fire with an automatic rifle" in the town of Zitiste, around 50 miles north of the capital Belgrade, according to police.
A man has been arrested and an investigation has been launched.
Interior minister Nebojsa Stefanovic has visited the scene and was quoted by the TV as saying the weapon was illegal and jealousy was believed to be the motive.
Mr Stefanovic said the killer had tried to flee the scene, but was stopped and detained by police.

He added: "We are all shocked that something like this could happen, since this was a very quiet man who had no police record." 
Serbian TV reported the attacker argued with his wife in the cafe and stormed out before returning with a weapon and opening fire.
Two people were killed instantly, while three died later in hospital in the nearby city of Zrenjanin.
None of those wounded are reported to be in a critical condition.
It is the third mass shooting in recent years in Serbia, which has been trying to cut the number of illegal weapons in circulation since the 1990s Balkan Wars.
Only the day before the latest rampage an amnesty had been launched by the interior ministry to encourage owners of illicit guns to hand them in to police stations.
