    Troops in Serbia have been put on high alert after Kosovan police made several arrests in the semi-autonomous territory dominated by Serbs.

    Police said they were targeting organised crime.

    But Serbian leaders, who don't recognise Kosovo's independence, say the officers were sent to intimidate them.

    Al Jazeera's Rory Challands reports.
