Murders and shootings, what is happening in the country in the last 24 hours
The calm days of August have been shaken by a series of clashes between mafia groups, but also by sudden explosions.
This morning, two people were killed in a gun attack at the Panaja crossing in Vlora. The perpetrators, who are suspected to be contract killers, blocked the road of the Mercedes Benz car in which the two victims, Geno (Shpati) Lena and Hakim Xhezo, were traveling, on which they emptied 30 Kalashnikov bullets, leaving them dead on the spot.
Yesterday evening, another crime shocked Elbasan, where 33-year-old Madrit Ulqinaku, the father of a girl, was left dead on the spot after being shot as soon as he left the bar where he was drinking coffee, near the main Boulevard of the city. The cause of this serious incident is thought to have been a momentary argument between the victim and the perpetrator, an 18-year-old still on the run.
Yes, last night in Saranda, in neighborhood no. 1 of the city, after a momentary conflict over a parking space, two brothers living in Laç and temporarily employed in Saranda stabbed 41-year-old Klodian Bakiaj, who died in the hospital as a result of the injuries he received.
The events that followed the mafia assassination at the Fushë-Kruja crossing a month ago with three killed: Brilant Martinaj, Diklen Vata and Besmir Hoxha, have shocked public opinion.
Only during the first 8 months of this year in Albania, 42 assassinations took place and 24 were killed and 23 injured.
