PRISTINA, Serbia-Montenegro A U-N police vehicle has exploded in Kosovo, killing an international police officer from Nigeria. Authorities believe a bomb caused the blast.

This is the first time a U-N officer had been killed in a suspected car bombing in Kosovo.

The blast occurred as the officer was driving to work this morning -- about 50 miles from the province's capital of Pristina.

A top U-N official calls the death a "very tragic incident" and says he's "shocked" at what happened. An investigation is under way.
