Hundreds of Serbs have blocked today the road linking Mitrovica to Leposavic, as a sign of protest against the arrest of two lawyers taken place today in the north of Mitrovica by EULEX.

Protesters, amongst which are also leaders of northern communes, have demanded the immediate release of the lawyers and have expressed their revolt against the fact that Kosovo police are never informed on operations carried out by EULEX.

IBNA sources inform that members of the so called “Civilna Zastita” are also on the scene.

In the early hours of this morning, EULEX has arrested today two lawyers in the north of Mitrovica, Faruk Korenica and Dejan Vasic, suspected of rigging evidence. /ibna/
