Serbs object to self-rule plan proposed by Kosovo Albanians

[JURIST] The Serb minority in Kosovo [Wikipedia backgrounder] Wednesday objected to a self-rule plan proposed by the province's Albanian leaders, asking for more concessions. The Serbs are demanding decentralized power and bigger self-governing areas in what is now a UN protectorate [UNMIK website]. One Serb leader called the latest plan "improved compared to the original version, but insufficiently compared to what we are asking for." An Albanian leader called the rejection "hurried and irrational". Reuters has more.
