Hundreds of Serb veterans protest at Kosovo border

GATE 3 BORDER POST, Kosovo – Several hundred Serb army veterans protesting against the independence of Kosovo threw rocks at Kosovo riot police on Thursday at a border crossing between Kosovo and Serbia, a Reuters reporter said.

The Kosovo police were backed by Czech troops in riot gear who stood ready to drive back the demonstrators at the Gate 3 crossing, where burning tires sent thick black smoke into the air. The NATO-led peacekeeping force KFOR is determined to prevent a repeat of Tuesday’s destruction of two other Kosovan border posts by Serbs.
