Serbs visit cemetery in southern Kosovska MitrovicaSource: Tanjug
KOSOVSKA MITROVICA -- Around 300 Serbs from northern Kosovska Mitrovica visited an Orthodox Serbian cemetery in the southern part of the town on All Souls Day on Saturday.
They say that All Souls Day is the only opportunity for them to visit graves of their loved ones.
90 percent of tombstones at the Serbian cemetery in southern Kosovska Mitrovica have been destroyed while not a single tombstone at the Albanian cemetery in the north part of the town is damaged. Serbs have not buried their dead at the cemetery since 1999.
Serbs also visited graves of their family members and friends in Priština, Obilić and Prizren in the organization of the Serbian government’s Office for Kosovo.
Serbs were unable to visit cemeteries in Đakovica, Uroševac, Suva Reka and Mušutište “because the buses did not get an escort of Kosovo police and EULEX”, the Office for Kosovo has released.
