The village was predominantly Serb. Its Serb population was displaced in June 1999, following the Kosovo War, but returned subsequently. However they face harassment,[3] and lack of electricity.[4]

NotesEdit

  1. ^ The political status of Kosovo is disputed. Having unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008, Kosovo is formally recognised as an independent state by 97 UN member states (with another 15 states recognising it at some point but then withdrawing their recognition), while Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory.
