As a result of clashes in the city of Zveçani in the north of partially recognized Kosovo, North Atlantic Alliance peacekeepers from the KFOR mission and Serbs protesting under the administrative building over the non-recognition of local elections were injured.

The Italian media, citing the KFOR statement, first reported 41 injured NATO peacekeepers, including 11 Italians, whose contingent is one of the largest in Kosovo. Later, KFOR's statement reported about 25 injured peacekeepers.


According to Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani, three of the injured Italians are in serious condition, but their lives are not in danger.
