BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) _ A NATO missile attack in Kosovo hit near a convoy of journalists Sunday, killing a local driver and wounding two European reporters and a French philosopher, the Serb-run Media Center in Pristina said.

A NATO spokesman said he was unable to comment.

One of the injured was a Times of London reporter identified as Eve-Ann Prentice. Also wounded was an unidentified reporter from the Italian Corriere della Sera newspaper and a French philosopher, Daniel Schiffer, who has been advocating the Serbian cause since the Bosnian war. The slain driver was identified as Nebojsa Radojevic, 28.

The Times said Prentice is a British national and staff journalist, but said they had no details about the incident.

The extent of the injuries was not immediately clear, but the center said the wounded were taken to the Prizren hospital.

A Portuguese television crew also was traveling in the two vehicle convoy.

The incident occurred at 4:30 p.m. in the village of Rekane, six miles from Prizren, a city 40 miles southwest of Pristina.
