KOSOVO — Tensions: People stood in front of graffiti depicting the late Bishop Amfilohije, left, and late Patriarch Pavle in the northern, Serb-dominated, part of the ethnically divided town of Mitrovica, on Friday. Tensions between Kosovo and Serbia resumed on Wednesday after Kosovo police clashed with ethnic Serbs during an anti-smuggling operation. Kosovo, a Serbian province before it declared independence in 2008, was in a war in 1998-1999 between Serbian troops and ethnic Albanian separatists fighting for independence until a NATO air campaign pushed Serb forces away.
