Mass anti-government rally in Pristina to mark Kosovo independence

Tens of thousands have gathered in the Kosovan capital, Pristina, to call for the resignation of the government and early elections.

The day marks the eighth anniversary of Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia.

The opposition are furious with the government for signing up to a deal, brokered by the EU, to hand greater powers to the Serb minority.

Opponents say the move will only increase ethnic divisions in the war scared country and boost the influence of Serbia in Kososvo.

Over the past four months the day-to-day running of the parliament has been hampered by opposition MPs systematically releasing tear gas into the debating chamber at the start of every session.
