"In Pec, a city 40 miles from Musutiste, the Serbs burned all 34 mosques, according to the Kosovo Islamic community. These included the Qarshise Mosque, built in 1471 and one of the oldest of its kind in Kosovo... The violence in Kosovo is not a religious war, but religion has sharpened the conflict. Most ethnic Albanians in Kosovo are Muslim, whereas the Serbs are Orthodox Christian. This difference has made religious institutions a natural target as Serbs, and now Albanians, have tried to sever the other group's ties to the province. According to the Islamic community of Kosovo, 187 mosques were burned or damaged by explosives between March 1998 and this past June, when Serb forces withdrew from Kosovo... Clergy, too, have been caught up in the violence. Muslim leaders say 30 members of the clergy and religion students were killed this spring. Three others are missing, while 10 languish in Serbian prisons. "
