Thugs attack launch of Kosovo magazine's gay sex issue

PRISTINA, Kosovo -- Thugs attacked the launch of a magazine's gay issue in the Balkan city of Pristina, allegedly beating guests and throwing teargas.

The event on Friday (Dec. 14) to celebrate Kosovo 2.0 magazine's latest issue exploring sex and sexuality was targeted twice by a group of hooligans who eyewitnesses claim were Muslim.

"There were around 20 people, violent, some of them wearing hats on their heads," a lesbian guest told Aleanca LGBT and Pro LGBT groups.

"They started to hit and loudly offend people, to break lights, tables, and projectors. Everything happened under the eyes of two policemen who tried to protect the participants of the event. One of the policemen got sprayed in the eyes [with teargas] by one of the hooligans."
