Kosovo: Extremist Student Leader Arrested

Kosovo police on Monday arrested Albin Kurti, the leader of an extremist ethnic Albanian student organisation, Vetevendosje (Self-determination), local media reported. Kurti was arrested in his Pristina office, after failing to appear in court in connection with recent unrest, police said. The group has opposed ongoing United Nations sponsored talks on the status of the breakaway province, which has been under UN control since 1999, and demands that Kosovo unilaterally declare independence. Vetevendosje has organised several protests in Pristina against the UN administration in Kosovo (UNMIK) and the local authorities. Scores of Vetevendosje’s members were arrested during demonstrations last month and charged with disorderly conduct. Full Story
