Serbs are continuing to block roads leading to Kosovo's north, stopping NATO military convoys from reaching their bases to reinforce troops deployed after an outbreak of violence. Many Kosovan Serbs are angry because the authorities have attempted to take over control of border posts with Serbia that have been manned by Serb members of the Kosovo police.

Serbs began blocking roads last week and have attacked border posts, firing at NATO peacekeepers in an attempt to keep control over Kosovo's north. In 2008, Kosovo unilaterally declared independence and has been recognized by most EU countries and the United Sates. In response to the recent escalation of violence in northern Kosovo, Serbia has reconfirmed its commitment to the protection of the Serb population.
