Kosovo police clash with anti-Serb protesters blockading border crossings

When the members of the Kosovo Albanian Self-Determination Movement attempted to blockade two border crossings between Kosovo and Serbia to prevent Serbian products from entering Kosovo, police in Kosovo fired tear gas and a water cannon at hundreds of Kosovo protesters. Police arrested 146 demonstrators while at least 52 people, including 31 police officers, were injured.

Travellers to this area should exercise caution and avoid all public demonstrations since they may become violent without notice.
