KFOR removes fence around churchyard in Lipljan without consent of local Serbs
Tanjug - September 20, 2004

19:07 BUJANOVAC , Sept 20 (Tanjug) - Finnish KFOR troops removed Monday a security barbed wire fence around the church in Lipljan, the sole safe area for local Serbs in this Kosovo town. KFOR removed the fence without the consent of the local Serb community, Lipljan municipality President Borivoje Vignjevic told Tanjug.

The local UNMIK administrator was not informed of this move either, Vignjevic said, adding that when he insisted to learn who had given the order to remove the fence, KFOR told him it was done at the insistence of the Kosovo police.
