The Ministry for Kosovo-Metohija under emergency procedure today approved aid of RSD 1 million to residents of a collapsed block of flats in Kosovska Mitrovica.

Two persons have been retained for treatment in the Kosvska Mitrovica hospital, after a four-storey building in the north part of the town, where 35 Serb families lives, was levelled to the ground.

Hospital surgeon Zlatan Elek said that Zlatko Cerovic sustained heavy bodily injuries, but is out of life danger. Radunka Milicevic suffered an injury of her left leg and cuts in the head.

The commander of the northern police station, Milija Milosevic, said that the building was levelled to the ground because it was around 90 years old and was heavily damaged in the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999.

All the tenants have been evacuated and assistance in that process was given by members of KFOR Belgian soldiers and fire units.

The Ministry for Kosovo-Metohija under emergency procedure today approved aid of RSD 1 million to residents of a collapsed block of flats in Kosovska Mitrovica.

The Ministry said in a statement that it has formed a response team with the local self-government, whose task will be to find temporary accommodation for over 35 currently homeless families.

A commission was also formed to determine the cause of the collapse and assess the damage.

The Ministry will keep monitoring the situation and will take additional measures if the need arises, adds the statement.
