Locals attempted to stop an excavator used in building a contested mini-hydro power plant in their community.
20 people have been injured, Serbia's public broadcaster RTS is reporting.
The protest to protect the rivers of the Sar Mountain has been ongoing for two months now, but the excavator started digging today, escorted by special police.
A peaceful protest was being held today in Obereke, where both local and special police were present.
Yesterday locals managed to turn the excavator back without incidents.
