Kosovo remained on edge on Wednesday as hundreds of Serbians gathered once again outside a town hall after clashing with NATO peacekeepers (KFOR) this week.

The protesters, who maintained a calm demeanour on Wednesday, displayed a massive Serbian flag spanning over 200 meters from the town hall to the centre of Zvecan.

AFP added that the KFOR soldiers took measures to secure the municipal building by forming a ring around it and reinforcing the perimeter with a metal fence and barbed wire.

However, the presence of ethnic Albanian Kosovo special police forces outside the building continues to be a source of controversy in the Serb-majority northern areas.

In response to the clashes between ethnic Serb protesters and KFOR peacekeepers, NATO had on Tuesday announced the deployment of additional forces to northern Kosovo after 30 peacekeepers were injured.

The European Union also called for an urgent de-escalation of tensions.
