Voters in Serbia elect a new parliament on Sunday, and conservative Aleksander Vucic is tipped to win a plurality. But he has a dark history of virulent Serbian nationalism.
Dozens of Kosovo Albanians have blocked a road to prevent Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic from visiting a Serb-populated enclave in Kosovo. Vucic has criticized NATO peacekeepers for not preventing the blockade.
Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic said there was a "long road full of thorns" ahead for Serbia and Kosovo. A border dispute between the two has put hopes of EU membership on hold.
Tensions in the Serb-majority northern part of Kosovo are rising ahead of a deadline to set up an association of Serb municipalities in the region. Serbia's president has told compatriots "peace is in our best interest."
Serbs and Kosovars want to take their borders back to the drawing board. Villages and valleys changing hands could help soothe an ancient feud but potentially break a longstanding taboo.
