STORY: For the second week in a row, opposition members gassed Kosovo's parliament. They are trying to scuttle a deal that would grant ethnic Serbian enclaves in Kosovo greater autonomy. Opposition politicians claim the EU-brokered deal undermines the sovereignty of Kosovo, which declared independence from Serbia in 2008. Belgrade has refused to recognize the small nation ever since. On Monday, police fought running battles with stone-throwing protesters who demanded the release of the parliamentarian who set off gas in the chamber last week. A bloc of opposition parties vows to continue disrupting parliament until the deal with Serbia is defeated.
