On 4 July 2019, Zana Cimili, a correspondent for TV Channel N1 in Kosovo, received death threats on social network, including against her daughter. The anonymous person said he had "a life desire to kill an Albanian, even an Albanian child," and he hoped "for a new war in Kosovo during which the Albanians will feel Serbian rage." On 6 July 2019, a Serbian national was arrested by Serbia’s police regarding this case, over “spreading of religious and national hatred and imperil safety”, N1 reported. A court placed the suspect under house arrest and banned him from using the Internet.
