KOSOVSKA MITROVICA -- Stones were being thrown between Serbs and Albanians across the bridge that separates northern and southern Kosovska Mitrovica.

KPS, KFOR and EULEX forces in the region stopped the conflicts from escalating.

There are no reports of injuries yet. The conflicts began at about 12:30 CET on the main bridge, where EULEX police are stationed.

Before the incidents occurred, there were some 2,000 Albanians protesting the Serb elections in the north on the southern side of the bridge, calling for a “defense of Kosovo’s sovereignty.”

The Albanians moved towards the bridge later, where local Serbs were gathering.
