Also on Monday in Kosovska Mitrovica, a vehicle belonging to the EPS company was attacked with stones, the Serbian government office for Kosovo has stated, adding there were no injuries in the incidents.

The EPS bus was stoned after company's employees had disconnected illegal users from the power grid.

Both incidents resulted in property damage.

The office condemns the incidents and calls on the international community to find the culprits, punish them and ensure that the Kosovo Serbs can work and live normally, the statement said.

Another incident was reported, this time south of the Ibar River. A house belonging to Lazarka and Srećko Simić, two local Serbs, was broken into and looted while they were away, visiting in central Serbia.

The thieves also sprayed the walls of the house with graffiti reading, "Kosovo Liberation Army".

The incident was reported to the Kosovo police, KPS, who, according to reports, "took fingerprints from some of the overturned furniture".

A statement issued by the Serb municipality of Orahovac said that it saw the incident as yet another in a series of attempts to intimidate the Serbs who still remained on their property.
