Kosovo police and protesters clashed in the town of Zvecan, May 26 after a crowd gathered in front of the municipality building tried to prevent a newly-elected ethnic Albanian mayor from entering his office. Police fired tear gas to disperse protestors and a police car was set ablaze. Four people have been injured in the clashes, the Tanjug news agency reported. The protests follow widely-boycotted local elections. Some 50,000 Serbs living in four north Kosovo municipalities, including Zvecan, shunned the April 23 vote in protest that their demands for more autonomy had not been met - a new setback for a March peace deal between Kosovo and Serbia. After the clashes in Zvecan, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic placed the neighboring country's army on full combat alert and ordered its units to move closer to the border with Kosovo on Friday. #Protest #Kosovo #reels #videography #voanews (Reuters) » Subscribe to VOA News: https://bit.ly/3KIPysi » Watch more VOA News video: https://www.youtube.com/c/VOANews Voice of America (VOA) is the largest U.S. international broadcaster, providing news and information in more than 40 languages to an estimated weekly audience of 236.8 million people.
