Here tonight - february the 17th 2008 - did Europe get a new country. Yes it is true. The province in Serbia, Kosovo, is now a country of it's own.
The albanian people in the province was tired of Serbia, and there has been a smaller conflict. The Serbians is not happy about it. They wonder if the albanians in the new country can handle it.
It has a population of just over two million people, predominantly ethnic Albanians, with smaller populations of Turks, Serbs, Romani people, Goranis, Bosniaks and other ethnic communities. Priština is the capital and largest city.
