Many people injured in North Kosovo clashes

At least 25 NATO soldiers have been injured in the last 24 hours in clashes with Serbs in northern Kosovo after peacekeepers moved in to take down barricades blocking roads.

The violent confrontations have raised fears that tensions are spinning out of control in the Serb-run enclave on the border with Serbia.

The latest violence started on Monday morning when a crowd of locals gathered to prevent troops from dismantling a barricade at Jagnjenica, near the town of Zubin Potok.

The violence continued until around midnight on Monday and involved use of “explosive devices and Molotov cocktails against KFOR”.

The situation on Tuesday morning appeared calm but the previous night’s affray had left many hurt and “had resulted in 23 additional injured soldiers by the late afternoon and evening”.
