Kosovska Mitrovica - While the policy in this town is being conducted by the extreme Albanians and Serbs, Kosovska Mitrovica cannot be multi-ethnic. This extremist orientation is particularly visible in the southern part of Kosovska Mitrovica where there are only three Serbian families among 90,000 Albanians. They live in the St. Sava church, literally in custody. At the same time, ethnic Albanians can move freely in the Serbian part of the town, says UNMIK spokeswoman Beatrice Lacoste.

It is unacceptable for UNMIK that Kosovska Mitrovica be divided town. Ethnic Albanians must enable repatriation of 600 Serbian families into the southern part of the town, says UNMIK spokeswoman and adds that the fear of the Serbs from Kosovska Mitrovica is justified.

I assert that there are no Serbian paramilitary units in the northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica and safety is at high level, says Lacoste.
