Kosovo arrests of two Serbs raise tensions

Police in Kosovo arrested two Serbs on Saturday and they will appear in court on Monday after spending 48 hours in police custody.

The Police said the two violated people’s equal rights by intimidating them over Serbia’s forthcoming elections, due on May 6.

Kosovo Serb MP Rada Trajkovic condemned the arrests as ethnically motivated and urged the international community to mediate in freeing the two men.

Serbia’s Minister for Kosovo, Goran Bogdanovic, on Sunday said the motive behind the arrest of two Kosovo Serbs was to further intimidate the Serb community in Kosovo.
