Water supply turned off in Kosovo capital Pristina after arrests

Water supplies to almost half of Kosovo’s capital city Pristina were turned off on Saturday after police arrested three people on terrorism charges close to an artificial lake. Two other men were arrested later in the day. All face terrorism charges, police said, without giving any further details. The Water Supply Company Prishtina said it had turned off its water treatment facility at Badovc lake after the arrests, apparently to check for any contamination. “We are checking the quality of the water and we will not restart until the tests say the water is clean,” spokeswoman Arjeta Mjeku said. Mjeku said the lake supplied 40 percent of the capital with drinking water.
