An explosive device was thrown into a residential street in Kosovska Mitrovica early Thursday in the Serb-dominated north of this divided town in Kosovo, the Serbian news agency Beta reported.

Bratislav Kragovic, the police station commander, said no one was hurt in the incident which occurred about 3 a.m. Thursday but there was some damage to nearyby parked vehicles.

Kragovic said a special unit of the Kosovo Police secured the scene and was investigating.

The blast was the most recent in a series of explosions in the northern region of Kosovo, where the majority of the remaining Kosovo Serbian population lives.

Kosovo Serbs largely do not recognize the self-declared independent status of Kosovo and are resisting integration into Kosovo institutions.
