Serbia has put its troops on the border with Kosovo on the highest state of alert following clashes between ethnic Serbs and Kosovo police.
Serbia orders army to Kosovo border after demo clashes
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has placed the country’s army on full combat alert and ordered its units to move closer to the border with Kosovo after protesters and police clashed in a majority Serb town in Kosovo.
“An urgent movement (of troops) to the Kosovo border has been ordered,” defence minister Milos Vucevic said in a live TV broadcast.
“It is clear that the terror against the Serb community in Kosovo is happening,” he said.
Police and protesters clashed in the town of Zvecan in Kosovo after a crowd gathered in front of the municipality building, trying to prevent a newly-elected ethnic Albanian mayor from entering his office.
