Thousands of Kosovo Serbs stage protest against Belgrade-Pristina deal

Around 10,000 Serbs in northern Kosovo and thousands more in Belgrade protested Monday against an EU-sponsored deal to normalise ties between Serbia and breakaway Kosovo. 

“Kosovo is the heart of Serbia” and “No to Pristina, no to the Brussels accord,” said slogans on placards carried by the protestors who waved Serbian flags as they gathered in the ethnically divided town of Mitrovica.

The protestors demanded that the deal be annulled and called Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic and other officials who had initialled it “traitors”.
