The European Union has condemned a weekend protest by hard-line Kosovo Albanians aimed at preventing the passage of Serbian goods across the border.
Michael Mann, a spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, said the demonstrations were "completely unjustified because they go against what is a fundamental EU freedom, the freedom of movement of goods."
More than 50 people, including 31 police, were hurt in clashes with hundreds of stone-throwing protesters from the Kosovo Albanian Self-Determination movement, which opposes all contact with Serbia.
Belgrade and Pristina have been at odds since Kosovo unilaterally proclaimed independence from Serbia in 2008.
