The Associated Press news agency has published a video recording of the Serbian group in Zveçan.

The drone footage shows all the movements of the armed attackers in the Banjska Monastery.

About 30 people masked in combat uniforms fled to the monastery after opening fire on a police patrol near the village of Banjska in the early hours of Sunday morning, killing policeman Afrim Bunjaku and wounding another.

They broke through the monastery gates in an armored personnel carrier before barricading themselves with priests and visiting pilgrims.

The standoff ended with most of the attackers fleeing on foot on Sunday evening.

Three of the gunmen were shot and killed by the Kosovo Police.

The police seized the vehicles used by the gunmen, which contained an arsenal of firearms of various calibers, explosives, ammunition and logistics capable of equipping hundreds of people.
