Full independence

Tear gas and rubber bullets

Having been to Kosovo and Montenegro this fall I’m not very much surprised. reports: “U.N. police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse Kosovar Albanians demanding an immediate referendum on full independence for Kosovo. Hospitals reported treating 70 people, though only four were seriously injured. Kosovar Albanians are lobbying for full independence from Serbia, while Serbian leaders are unwilling to move past granting autonomy. The United Nations is entering the final stages of deciding Kosovo's status.”
