Tear gas, stun grenades against protesting Serbs

KOSOVSKA MITROVICA -- KFOR and EULEX members have used tear gas and stun grenades against protesting Serbs in the Brđani settlement of northern Kosovska Mitrovica.

International forces reacted to prevent the protesters from approaching the so-called yellow line of separation with ethnic Albanians.

Shots were also heard today from firearms. No casualties were reported, and it remains unclear who used the weapons.

The Serbs remind that the reconstruction of Albanian houses is possible only with an agreement reached by both sides – a provision of a deal reached in 2000.

Strong KFOR and EULEX forces are on the Albanian side, while Kosovo police, KPS, members are close to the separation line. KFOR soldiers were also seen in the nearby hills....B92
