Kosovo celebrates five years of independence

Armed forces parade in Pristina on anniversary of declaration of independence from Serbia.

    Kosovo celebrated the fifth anniversary of their declaration of independence from Serbia with a parade of police and armed forces in the main square of Pristina, the capital.

    Sunday's celebration is the first time such forces have been used in a parade since the end of the 1998-99 war with Serbia.

    Ninety-six nations have recognised Kosovo's independence, but Serbia claims the territory as its own. The European Union is currently mediating talks between the two former foes.
