    Serbia has blamed the NATO and the European Union for a surge in tensions in Kosovo after a police raid sparked anger among minority ethnic Serbs.

    Tuesday's operation in a Serb-dominated area of Kosovo brought an angry reaction in Belgrade, where the government put troops on full alert.

    Meanwhile, hundreds of ethnic Serbs held a protest in North Mitrovica.
