17 Feb 2008, Brussels, Belgium --- 300 Kosovars are demonstrating in the streets near the European Union. The Kosovo Parliament has proclaimed independence from Serbia. Kosovo will be the 6th state carved from the Serb-dominated federation since 1991, after Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Montenegro, and the last to escape Serbia's embrace. Kosovo has been run by the United Nations since the mid-1999, after a NATO air assault drove out Serbian forces waging a brutal crackdown on separatist ethnic Albanian guerillas and their civilian supporters. --- Image by © Thierry Tronnel/Corbis
