Kosovo marks 'independence day'





Kosovo has been striving to secure its borders and develop its economy in the face of opposition from Serbia, which refuses to recognise its independence.

Prime Minister Hashim Thaci says it is building a homeland for all its people.

But correspondents say parts of northern Kosovo remain tensely divided between ethnic Albanians and Serbs.

MPs from the Serbian parliament in Belgrade are due to hold a committee meeting in Kosovo in protest against the anniversary.

Ethnic Albanians constitute 90% of Kosovo's two million people.
