Kosovo Serbs remove barrier in divided Mitrovica

Text size Aa Aa

Serbs in the ethnically-divided Kosovo town of Mitrovica removed a barricade blocking the main bridge, the latest sign of a tentative thaw between Serbs and Albanians six years after Kosovo seceded from Serbia.

The barricade of concrete and gravel was erected in 2011 by local Serbs protesting against a police move to rein in a northern area of Kosovo, where tens of thousands of Serbs reject its independence from Belgrade.
