Gazemestan, KOSOVO

Serbs are detained by a Kosovo Albanian Special Police Unit as they arrive to commemorate the 1389 Battle of Kosovo Field at Gazemestan. The Albanian police confiscated Serbian Nationalist T shirts. NATO troops have always provided security for this event in previous years, and the fact that this year the duty was handed to Kosovo Albanian police units carries a heavy significance. Every year Serbs visit the site to hold a religious ceremony commemorating the battle, which they lost, and which they see as the moment when they lost control of their country and the Balkans to the Muslim Ottoman Empire which was in control for the next 500 years.
