A dog is chained to a fence at a Roma camp in the Serb-majority town of Leposavic in northern Kosovo on Monday. About 35 Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian families, displaced by the 1998-99 Kosovo conflict, have moved to their new homes in the Roma Mahala neighbourhood in Mitrovica.
Ethnic Serbs, citizens of Northern Kosovo, wave Serbian national flags and messages against the Brussels Agreement, during a rally that gathered 15,000 people from Northern Kosovo in the ethnically divided city of Mitrovica, Kosovo, Serbia, 22 April 2013. The demonstrators were protesting against an EU-brokered reconciliation agreement between Serbia and Kosovo. The deal is a major prerequisite for Serbia to move closer to EU membership. It is also seen as a first large step toward the normalization of relations between Serbia and its former province, which declared independence in 2008. Belgrade has refused to recognize the mostly ethnic-Albanian entity. Kosovo Serbs, whose autonomy in the north was the toughest sticking point in the negotiations, rejected the agreement in a protest drawing thousands to their hub, the town of Mitrovica.
