1. (SBU) U.S. Office Pristina reports approximately
80 demonstrators blocked access to an UNMIK office,
located in a predominantly Serb neighborhood in north
Mitrovica. Post expects more demonstrations this
weekend with demonstrators likely to be bused in from
Serbia. A possible march from Serb-dominated
Gracanica, in southern Kosovo, to Pristina is also a
concern.
