Two men were killed early Saturday while the casino “Vegas” in Skopje was being robbed, police say.
On February 15 at 4:47 am, four armed attackers entered the casino and opened fire. They shot a 22 year old man from Kosovo, identified by the police as V.H., killing him on the spot. Then they attacked 20 year old B.N. from the village of Krusopek, who worked as a security agent in the casino. One of the attackers bludgeoned B.N. with the butt of his rifle, and these injuries also proved fatal. The men emptied the cash register and fled the scene, said the Interior Ministry.
