Former fighters from the Kosovo Liberation staged Thursday a protest demonstration in the capital of the Kosovo Republic Prishtina.

About 50 men who fought in the KLA in 1998-1999 rallied in demand of an increase of their government pensions, BGNES reported.

The demonstrators even threw a hand-made bomb and two explosives in the yard of the Cabinet headquarters in Prishtina but they failed to go off.

NATO troops from KFOR arrived at the spot of the incident in order to remove the explosives, and the police isolated the whole quarter.

The leaders of the KLA protesters have vowed to continue with their rallies.
