    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.
