About 2,000 ethnic Albanians have gathered to protest against the EU police mission, whose arrest of former rebels suspected of war crimes has sparked anger among veterans of the 1998-99 Kosovo war. The protesters chanted “Down with Eulex”, the name for the 2,000-strong EU mission, and carried banners Tuesday supporting the Kosovo Liberation Army that fought for cessation from Serbia. The EU police mission is in charge of prosecuting war crimes in Kosovo. A former government minister was among 11 former rebels suspected of torturing and killing Serb captives and their ethnic Albanian collaborators. Nine are already in jail. About 10,000 people, mostly ethnic Albanians, died in the war. Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008.
