Radivoke Lajic, 50, said that his house being hit by rocks from space was the result of an extraterrestrial grudge.

"I am obviously being targeted by extraterrestrials," he said.

"I don't know what I have done to annoy them but there is no other explanation that makes sense.

"The chance of being hit by a meteorite is so small that getting hit six times has to be deliberate."

Mr Lajic, who lives in the village of Gornji Lajici in northern Bosnia, near Prijedor, said that the meteorite strikes always happen when it is raining.

The first meteorite struck his house in November 2007.

Scientists at Belgrade University have confirmed that the rocks are all meteorites.

"I have no doubt I am being targeted by aliens," he said.

"They are playing games with me. I don't know why they are doing this. When it rains I can't sleep for worrying about another strike."

Mr Lajic has reinforced his roof with steel for fear that a meteor may hit his house.

He paid for the steel girder by selling one of the meteorites to a university in the Netherlands.

"But these meteorites have brought happiness to our family as well, as we've met different people from around the world that were interested in it," he said.

"And I have had so many visitors that I plan to make a small museum in my back garden."

Mr Lajic first hit the headlines two years ago, when the fifth meteorite struck his house.

Scientists are now studying magnetic fields around the property to try and explain the frequency of the strikes.
