UN, NATO troops clash with Kosovo Serbs after retaking UN courthouse

Hundreds of furious Serb protesters attacked international forces outside a UN courthouse in Kosovo, sparking an hours-long battle Monday with rocks, hand grenades and live ammunition. At least 63 UN and NATO forces and 70 protesters were injured in the clashes in the divided northern town of Kosovska Mitrovica - the worst violence Kosovo has seen since it declared independence from Serbia a month ago. UN police had stormed the courthouse just before dawn to arrest dozens of Serbs who had occupied it since Friday to protest Kosovo's statehood.
