Another Albanian attack

Published: 25 September 1913

Albanian forces have made another attack on Serbia. It appears that an Albanian force, some 6,000 strong crossed the border into Serbia, in the Black Drin district and have moved forward as far as the Djuma region. The smaller Serbian forces are said to be in retreat. The current belligerence by Albania is said by the Serbians to have been led, in part, by Bulgarian army officers operating in the country. The general state of unrest has now spread into Kosovo, and latest reports suggest that an Albanian force of 25,000 men is preparing to make a larger move against Serbia.
