Kosovo to vote amid ethnic Serb boycott concerns

3 November 2013 Last updated at 04:34 GMT

Polls are set to open in Kosovo's municipal elections, with ethnic Serb communities encouraged to vote for the first time.

The governments of both Serbia and Kosovo have been promoting a strong turnout, but many people in the north are likely to boycott the vote.

Kosovar Serbs are concerned that if they vote, it will legitimise the independent state of Kosovo.
