UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A staffer working for the U.N. civilian mission in Kosovo was shot and killed Monday night after his first day on the job, a U.N. spokesman said.

The staffer was shot on the street on his way to dinner after arriving in Pristina earlier in the day, spokesman Manoel de Almeida e Silva said.

U.N. officials were withholding the staffer's name and nationality pending notification of his family, the spokesman said.
