Kosovo police, protesters clash in Pristina

PRISTINA, May 12 (Reuters) - Kosovo police fired teargas to disperse hundreds of Kosovo Albanians who rallied in downtown capital Pristina on Thursday to protest the visit of a Serbian government negotiator.

Police intervened after protesters, mainly supporters of the opposition Vetvendosje or the Self-Determination party, pelted government building with stones and bottles with red paint and damaged police and government cars, a Reuters witness said.

Borko Stefanovic, Belgrade’s top negotiator, travelled to Pristina to discuss further European Union-mediated talks about improving practical relations between Serbia and Kosovo, its former southern province.
