Serb football fans protest against Kosovo independence
EU leaders have offered Serbia a faster route towards EU membership. It is seen as a way of keeping the Balkans stable, with Kosovo set to declare independence from Serbia, which has already rejected the trade-off.
 
QUOTE OF THE DAY
 The trade-off is out of the question. We cannot exchange our territory for our European future.
 
Serbian foreign minster, Vuk Jeremic.
 
HAVE YOUR SAY
If Kosovo declares itself an independent state, should the European Union recognise it as such?
President Putin is meeting the Belarussian leader today. Some are suggesting that the men may be discussing the creation of a Belarus-Russian union state. But the Kremlin and President Lukashenko have denied it.
 
Yesterday's conviction of pro-independence activist, Yvan Colonna, for the murder of Corsica's governor nine year ago triggered a series of overnight fire-bombings. Police on the island are on high alert.
