Around 40 soldiers of the NATO-led peacekeeping mission – KFOR, including members of the Albanian Army which are part of this force, were seen on Thursday walking the main street of Mitrovica North.

Serb media report that the visit of KFOR members seemed ‘not routine’ and local Serbs living in that part of Kosovo are concerned with the visit, Gazeta Express reports.

The KFOR troops were seen walking in Mitrovica North today at noon, who initially visited the main bridge of Mitrovica which divides the town in ethnic lines with Albanians living in the south and Serbs in the north, and later the peacekeepers were seen walking the main street of Mitrovica North, which is controlled by Serbs.
