PRISTINA - Armed ethnic Serbs, who attacked and burned down a border post, fired at NATO peacekeeping forces in Kosovo on Wednesday in the ethnic-Serb dominated northern part of the country.

"The situation deteriorated at the customs post Jarinje and it was confirmed that an act of arson was committed against that position... There have also been confirmed reports of shots fired at KFOR personnel in the vicinity," NATO peacekeeping mission in Kosovo (KFOR) said in a statement.

The NATO statement did not say whether anyone was injured in the attack or whether KFOR troops returned fire, but said reinforcements had been sent to the border.

A Serb witness on the scene saw dozens of masked men, armed with crowbars, clubs, axes, Molotov cocktails and handheld flares, burn down the border crossing post.
