BANJSKA - The Banjska village in the Zvecan municipality in the north of Kosovo-Metohija remains sealed off after Sunday's deadly clashes that followed an attempt by a group of Serbs to block a road in the village.
Three Serbs and one officer of the so-called Kosovo Police were killed in the clashes.
They gathered in peaceful protest to express their dissatisfaction with the violent actions of Pristina in the north, the arrival of Kosovo special forces and the imposition of illegal Albanian mayors elected in elections in which the turnout was only about 3.5 percent and which the Serbs boycotted.
ZVECAN - The night passed calmly in Zvecan, a Serb-majority municipality in the north of Kosovo-Metohija and, in the morning, local Serbs continued a peaceful protest that began at the end of May.
The protesters, who have been gathering in front of a cordon of Kfor troops every day, said they would not end the protest until their demands were met.
It has been 13 days since the raid of special police units on the premises of the municipalities of Zvean, Zubin Potok and Leposavi, and today is the tenth day of protest by the residents of Zvean who want the special units to withdraw from the north of Kosovo and for the workers of the municipality to be allowed to return to their workplaces.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic told media on Thursday that he had "begged" locals in the north of Kosovo, protesting for the fourth day in a row in front of municipal buildings in the Serb-dominated area, "in their determination to persevere in the fight for law and justice, to do so always, above all, in relation to KFOR, in a peaceful way".
KOSOVSKA MITROVICA - Alert sirens were sounded on Friday in all four Serb-majority municipalities in the north of Kosovo-Metohija - Zubin Potok, Kosovska Mitrovica, Zvecan and Leposavic - as residents gathered around municipal buildings in Zubin Potok, Zvecan and Leposavic to prevent Pristina's police from taking control of them.
