Heavy gunfire has broken out on the border between Macedonia and Kosovo,
according to reports from the area.
The exchanges continued for at least an hour near the village of Tanusevci
and appeared to involve anti-aircraft weapons and automatic rifle fire.

Journalists from Reuters and AFP news agencies said ethnic Albanian fighters
appeared to be locked in a gun battle with Macedonian security forces.

Tension has increased in the border area recently, and at least two
Macedonian-based groups have been set up to fight for ethnic Albanian
independence.
