Several people turned out on Walld Wednesday, one of them of gravity, in clashes between the special police of Kosovo and the Serbian demonstrators in North Kosovar, during protests against the confiscation of goods by the authorities, informed sources of Belgrade.

According to the Director of the Serbian Government Office for Kosovo, Petar Petkovic, doctors fight for the life of a Serbian of the city of Zvecan that was seriously injured by bullet.

"It was an intense shock, the Rosu units (Special Police) shot with firearms to the unarmed Serbian people who defended their right to a dignified life and the freedom of movement," said Petkovic at a press conference in Belgrade.

He affirmed that "tens" people were injured, although not specified if it was by shots or by the tear gas used by the police to disperse the protesters.

The Serbian politician urged the international community to act to protect the population. In Pristina, the Kosovar police reported six injuries between their agents and accused the protesters to block streets and attack police vehicles.

The Kosovar Kossev portal reported that several hundred serbokosovars were concentrated in Mitrovica and ZVECan after the Kosovo Special Police arrived with armored vehicles to the two cities. According to the police, vehicles participated in an operation against smuggling of goods in different sites in the country.

Kurti, "wants to cause large-scale conflicts and chaos" in northern Kosovo, mostly populated by Serbs who do not recognize Pristina's sovereignty, he said.
