Serbia: Belgrade Riots

Limbic Nutrition on the situation in Belgrade: “The violence tonight was fully expected. Western embassies were texting and emailing their citizens all week warning us to stay away from the demonstrations. Since Monday, the day after rioters attacked the US and Slovenian embassies in response to Kosovo’s declaration of independence, Serbs have been warning foreign friends to avoid speaking foreign languages too loudly on the streets (although that is pure alarmism. In three years I have never once encountered serious xenophobia and the mobs are not attacking individuals).”
