Ethnic Serbs in north Kosovo protest over new customs duties

Police have stopped a group of ethnic Serbs from northern Kosovo from blocking a border crossing with Serbia.

The businessmen are protesting the introduction of new customs duties at checkpoints.

The EU-brokered deal is seen as a crucial step to improve relations between the two former enemies.

But the Serb business community in has refused to pay the new charges.

Around 40,000 ethnic-Serbs live in the north of Kosovo.

The area is often the centre of disputes over Belgrade’s ongoing rejection of Kosovo’s independence, which is recognised by 96 countries.
