Kosovo police and protesters clash at border

Clashes erupt at the border between Kosovo and Serbia. Police fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse hundreds of demonstrators trying to block traffic from Serbia.

The ethnic Albanian protesters were decrying what they said was Serbia's obstruction of Kosovo's independence. They ignored calls to disperse, and were throwing rocks at police.

Dozens were detained, and some protesters and police were injured. Albin Kurti, The head of the party Self-Determination, said Serbia's behaviour should be questioned. Source
