Kosovo prosecutors have formally charged five suspects for a violent attack on a Turkish consulate.
A statement Thursday said the five suspects, identified only by their initials, have "endangered persons under international protection." The charges could result in up to 10 years' imprisonment.
In November suspects threw a Molotov cocktail and cement stones at the Turkish consulate in the western city of Prizren, 85 kilometers (50 miles) west of the capital, Pristina, causing an explosion. The consulate suffered minor damage and no one was injured.
Surveillance cameras and testimony from witnesses showed a vehicle believed to have been used in the attack. The five suspects were arrested the same day.
Prosecutors did not give details on the reason for the attack.
Kosovo is a former Serbian province with nearly 1.8 million people, over 90 percent of whom were Kosovar Albanians.
It declared independence on Feb. 17, 2008, and is recognized by over 100 countries, including the U.S., the U.K., France, Germany and Turkey.
Serbia, Russia and China are among countries that have not yet recognized Kosovo's independence.
