MITROVICA, KOSOVO | Tuesday, October 4, 2011 — by Vedat Xhymshiti

This is a podcast worked just by last night I try to show through the variety of images a general description of the ethnically divided town of Mitrovica a city in northern Kosovo, for whom the ‘tension’ word is a never ending story title.
You can see the barricaded town instead of a peaceful city, you can hear politicians declaring the contrary of the reality on the ground as well as EULEX police staff members drunk, having fun on the barricaded main bridge of the ethnically divided town of Mitrovica.
Furthermore, I will leave it in your hands… judge by yourself…
