Fighting outside of Kosovo's capital. The violence broke out when NATO peacekeeping forces tried to dismantle Serbian roadblocks. The troops were confronted by hundreds of Serbs who pelted them with stones. NATO troops fired tear gas and small arms and some protesters fired back with handguns. At least three Kosovo Serbs and a NATO soldier were wounded in the violence. The roadblocks were erected as part of a long-running Serb campaign to prevent the government of Kosovo from imposing its rule in the area. Sarah Sheffer, Reuters
