Reports: Dozens Hurt As Kosovo Serbs, Police Clash

Reports say that dozens of protestors and some eight Kosovo police officers were slightly injured in clashes during demonstrations over power cuts in Kosovo on March 8.

Police said that about 200 Serbs gathered for a third day of protests against power cuts in their village of Silovo, in central Kosovo, trying to block the major road leading to the capital Pristina.

A police spokesman said that when riot police prevented them from blocking the road, protestors pelted police officers with stones and bottles.

Kosovo's electricity provider said the cuts were due to unpaid bills, some allegedly dating back to 1999.
