Kosovo: Serbian demonstrators clash with police in northern Kosovo

More than a dozen people were injured Sunday evening in clashes between Serbian demonstrators and police in northern Kosovo, DPA reports.

About 300 Serbs were protesting frequent electricity cuts and blocked an arterial road. Police trying to end the blockade were stoned by the demonstrators. At least 10 policemen were injured in the clash, police spokesman Ismet Hasani told dpa. Belgrade media reported that several protestors were also injured.

Serbs in the villages of northern Kosovo have been without electricity for many weeks as they have refused to pay the ethnic Albanian-run power company.
