Over 30 peacekeepers injured in clashes in northern Kosovo

OVER 30 peacekeepers deployed in a Nato-led mission in Kosovo were injured yesterday in clashes with Serb protesters who demanded the removal of recently elected ethnic Albanian mayors, as tensions flare in the Balkan nation.

Nato’s Kosovo Force (KFOR) said it had faced “unprovoked attacks” while countering a hostile crowd after demonstrators clashed with police and tried to force their way into a government building in the northern town of Zvecan.
