Serbs defy U.N., form parliament

June 29, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Hard-line Serb leaders formed their own parliament, ignoring Kosovo's declaration of independence and defying its United Nations administrators.

The action in the Serb-controlled half of the divided town of Mitrovica represents an attempt by the Serbs to split the disputed territory, which they claim despite the secession by the Kosovo Albanian majority, backed by the West, in February.

A declaration adopted by the self-proclaimed parliament said that Kosovo was "an inseparable part of Serbia" and that Kosovo's secession was an illegal act.
