Opponents of the Kosovo government's deals with Serbia and Montenegro have pitched tents in front of the main government building in the capital, demanding the government's resignation and fresh elections.

Hundreds of opposition supporters and their leaders gathered in front of the offices of the government, parliament and president Tuesday. Visar Ymeri, leader of the main opposition Self-Determination Movement Party, told The Associated Press they would stay there "until the government resigns and fresh elections are declared."

Since September, the opposition has disrupted Parliament with tear gas, pepper spray, whistles and water bottles to reject a deal between Kosovo and Serbia, reached last year, which gives more powers to ethnic Serbs in Kosovo. The opposition also rejects a border demarcation pact with Montenegro.
