PRISTINA - The U.S. department of defence donated on Monday more than $1.06 million (867,000 euro) in equipment to the U.N.-administered province of Kosovo.
The donation went to the Kosovo Protection Corps, the province's civilian emergency service agency. It includes search and rescue equipment.
The donation is part a U.S. humanitarian assistance package for the province. The U.S. last month donated $90,000 in fire fighting aid.
The United Nations has administered Kosovo since the 1999 NATO bombing campaign to halt Serbia's repression of the province's ethnic Albanian majority, which continues to seek independence.
