NATO patrols Kosovo-Serbia border as tensions soar

NATO forces in Kosovo have increased their patrols on the northern border near Serbia.

It comes after Serbia deployed armored vehicles by a border crossing and ethnic Serbs in Kosovo protested a decision by Kosovo's government concerning license plates.

What is the row about license plates about?

Serbia does not recognize Kosovo nor its license plates and has required drivers from Kosovo to remove them and purchase temporary ones while driving through Serbia.

Likewise, Kosovo opted to impose a similar measure, demanding that Serbian drivers in Kosovo pay €5 ($5.85) for a temporary license plate good in Kosovo for two months.

Ethnic Serbs in northern Kosovo reacted with fury last week, blocking roads and the two border crossings to Serbia while Serbia deployed armored vehicles and military aircraft flew over the border. The result has been the worst regional tensions in a decade.
