Dozens of protesters have blocked a road in Kosovo to prevent Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic from visiting the ethnic Serb village of Banja. Kosovar Albanian veterans from the 1998-99 Kosovo War took part in the September 9 protest near the village of Vojtes, which eventually stopped Vucic and made him cancel his visit to Banja. Hungarian and Swiss troops from the NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR) were deployed alongside the blockade and said they were ready to intervene if Kosovar authorities asked for that.
