Kosovo: Kosovo Serbs hold referendum on Pristina government | Reuters

Ethnic Serbs in northern Kosovo voted Tuesday in a referendum on whether to recognize the government in Pristina, which they have ignored since Serbia’s former province became independent in 2008.┬áKosovo is 90 percent ethnic Albanian. Serbs dominate in a small swathe of the north bordering Serbia and pledge allegiance to Belgrade. They have so far resisted efforts by the Kosovo government to extend its authority there.┬áThe result of the two-day referendum is expected on February 19. The decision will have little practical impact but could further stoke ethnic tensions.
