PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro (AP) - NATO peacekeepers raided a house in Kosovo, seizing weapons and marijuana and arresting two people, police said Friday.

The two people detained on suspicion of weapons and drugs possession were handed over to police, said Larry Miller, a U.N. police spokesman.

An AK-47 assault rifle, a pistol and ammunition, as well as 3 kilograms (6 pounds) of marijuana, were seized during the search Thursday, he said.

Kosovo has been administered by the United Nations and patroled by NATO peacekeepers since 1999.
