Kosovo Serb protesters attack UN police


news.yahoo.com

KOSOVSKA MITROVICA, Kosovo - Violent protests rocked Serb-dominated northern Kosovo on Friday, as mobs chanting "Kosovo is ours!" hurled stones, bottles and firecrackers at U.N. police guarding a bridge that divides Serbs from ethnic Albanians.


The scenes evoked memories of the carnage unleashed by former Serb autocrat Slobodan Milosevic the last time Kosovo tried to break away from Serbia, which considers the territory its ancestral homeland.

This land has been disputed for centuries. The truth to this matter is that the Serbians owned this land. The Turks never defeated them. If the turks defeated them then maybe they would have claim but, they didn't. The serbs still own this land and it should remain theirs.

I am hoping that somebody could help me realize why the land should be split, Kosovo and Serbia. It all should be Serbia..... Or Croatia... The ancient Orthodix term used when the Turks attacked back in the 1300's

UNMIK is police is bunch of incompentent idiots. When Albanians did ethnic cleansing in 17th March 2004 both UNMIK and Kosovo police just watched Albanians.

KFOR didn't allow yesterday hundreds/thousends of students to cross administrative line with buses to come at protests in Mitrovica.
So, the students in Mitrovica started throwing firecrackers angered by news that several hundred of their colleagues from Belgrade, Niš and Kragujevac were held at the Jarinje administrative line crossing.

Serbs withdraw from UNMIK judiciary
23 February 2008 | 10:37 | Source: Beta
BELGRADE -- The Ministry of Justice has ordered all Serbs now employed with UNMIK to return to their original judicial institutions.

The move is designed to strengthen the institutions of the state of Serbia in Kosovo, a statement from the ministry said Friday.

"The ministry has received statements from judges, court officials and magistrates that they are withdrawing from the positions held with UNMIK, and are returning to work for the judicial institution of the Republic of Serbia in Kosovo and Metohija," the statement said.

It adds that the move comes in line with a joint Serbian government-UNMIK declaration on engagement of Serb judges into the multi-ethnic system in Kosovo, and the government's decision dated April 26, 2007.

"In this way, five judges and 25 court officials are returning to the courts in Leposavić, Vučitrn, Kosovska Mitrovica, Priština, Leposavić and Zubin Potok," the ministry said.
