A large Kosovo flag has been raised over the medieval Serb fortress at Novo Brdo, the Serbian state TV (RTS) reported on Thursday.

A second Kosovo flag has been raised by the ruins of the Serbian Orthodox Church of St Nicholas along with several military tents occupied by about a dozen men in uniform, it added.

The ruins of the church and fortress recently became the subject of debate in Belgrade and Pristina after the Kosovo authorities allowed Albanian Catholic priests to serve mass in the ruins of the Orthodox Christian cathedral.

The Serbian Orthodox Church protested against the Catholic service and Serbian Culture Minister Vladan Vukosavljevic sent a note to the Vatican protesting the decision.
