Shooting ruptures Macedonian quiet
Two people have died and one person has been injured in a shooting incident in Macedonia near the northern town of Tetovo.

The interior minister Vasko Sutarov said the victims were ethnic Albanians, and that the security forces were not involved.

Local police say the incident may have been related to disagreements between rebel groups.

The ethnic-Albanian guerillas announced last month they were disbanding.

But correspondents say some fighters have been reluctant follow the order, because the Macedonian parliament has not yet given final approval to the Western-backed deal to end the insurrection.
