MITROVICA - Kosovo police tried to seize control of several border control posts in its Serb-controlled north overnight, prompting Serbia to warn of a dangerous escalation of tensions.

The move is the latest from Pristina against its former ruler after it banned all imports from Serbia last week.

"This situation is very dangerous," Oliver Ivanovic, Serbia's state secretary for Kosovo, told Reuters.

Late Monday night Kosovo special police forces attempted to seize control of three border posts in an area of northern Kosovo over which it does do not have administrative control.
