Around 25 soldiers deployed in the NATO-led KFOR peacekeeping mission in Kosovo were injured Monday as they clashed with Serb protesters demanding the removal of recently-elected ethnic Albanian mayors, KFOR said.

“While countering the most active fringes of the crowd, several soldiers of the Italian and Hungarian KFOR contingent were the subject of unprovoked attacks and sustained trauma wounds with fractures and burns due to the explosion of incendiary devices,” KFOR said in a statement.

NATO strongly condemned the “unprovoked attacks” against KFOR troops, adding that “such attacks are totally unacceptable”.
