Bosnian Serb Television
September 23, 1995, in Mount Ozren, Bosnia

Kolevski, a cameraman for Bosnian Serb Television in Banja Luka, and the station's driver, Goran Pejcinovic, disappeared on September 23, 1995 while covering fighting on Mount Ozren. The Bosnian Foreign Ministry issued a statement claiming that the two were killed in cross fire during the fighting. The Bosnian Serb news agency, SRNA, claims that they were killed while in custody of Bosnian Muslims. According to a Bosnian Serb Television reporter who was riding with them at the time of the incident, Bosnian troops shot at their vehicle, seriously wounding or killing Kolevski and Pejcinovic. Pejcinovic's body was returned to Bosnian Serb authorities on October 25.
