The situation in northern Kosovo was calm on the night from Monday to Tuesday, said N1’s reporter.

The largest number of people are still assembled outside the Leposavic municipal administration building because the newly elected Kosovo Albanian Mayor has been inside the building for over 24 hours.

N1’s reporter said that, according to his information, there are more people assembled in Leposavic than on Monday.

The situation in Zvecan, where clashes broke out on Monday, is calm on Tuesday morning, with less people outside the municipal administration building. Over 50 Serbs and more than 25 KFOR members were injured Monday in clashes between KFOR and the Serb protesters who had assembled to prevent the Albanian Mayor from entering the Zvecan municipal administration building.

Kosovo Serbs also assembled in Zubin Potok on Tuesday morning, where strong security forces are still guarding the municipal administration building.

Mayors of Zvecan and Zubin Potok said they will not be going to their offices on Tuesday.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic spoke Monday with European Union (EU) representatives, and is to have talks with the ambassadors of Quint, Russia and China on Tuesday.
