Kosovo elections Kosovska Mitrovica

Kosovo votes Sunday in the fourth general election since the former province declared independence from Serbia in 2008.
Ethnic Albanian-majority Kosovo is still home to about 120,000 ethnic Serbs who are fiercely loyal to Belgrade.
They are most concentrated in the north around the divided city of Mitrovica, where Pristina has struggled to exercise its authority.
But Kosovo’s status as a nation remains a matter of international dispute, relations with Belgrade are dismal, and its people are fed up with widespread poverty and corruption. Photo Vladimir Zivojinovic/AFP
