Video: NATO troops shot, wounded in violent Kosovo clashes

A German NATO officer and a soldier were shot and wounded in clashes with Serbs in northern Kosovo on Monday after the military alliance's troops used heavy machinery to remove trucks and buses blocking a main road in the tense region, an official said. German and Austrian peacekeepers involved in Monday's operation fired rubber bullets and tear gas and used water canon and pepper spray to disperse the crowd of Serb protesters trying to stop the soldiers from removing a roadblock. The clashes took place at Jagnjenica, some 60 km (40 miles) northwest of Pristina. They follow months of tensions, following a decision by Kosovo's authorities to extend their authority in the areas under de-facto Serb rule. RT on Twitter RT on Facebook
