NATO’s force in Kosovo has said it will shoot to kill anyone who crosses a barricaded area near the disputed checkpoint on Serbia’s border with Kosovo, reports RT’s Aleksey Yaroshevsky.
The crossing, formerly controlled by Serbia, was seized by Kosovo police backed by the alliance two weeks ago. Serbs responded by building a barricade.
On Friday morning more than 100 KFOR troops arrived at the scene and forced the Serbs to leave, threatening the use of lethal force. They said they would shoot anyone who fails to comply with the demand. KFOR also ordered journalists to leave the immediate area.
