Clash in Mitrovica

The Self-Determination group clashed with police in Mitrovica today.  The group spray-painted their usual "Jo Negociata Vetenvendosje" (which Kujtim still argues is spelt incorrectly!) message.  Four police officers are reported to have been injured but there is little news on what exactly happened.  The leader of the group, Albion Kurti, thinks that independence for Kosovo should be reached without negotiation with Serbia and continues to lead the anti-UN campaign despite being arrested previously in other protests.  Talks are expected to begin on the 25th of January between the Serbian and Kosovo groups.
