Before 1999 Mitrovica was a town where Serbs and ethnic Albanians lived side-by-side. It is now is Kosovo's most glaring symbol of separation, as the two populations quickly separated themselves after the fall of the Serbian government in Kosovo and occupied opposite banks of the Ibar river. Serbs fleeing from ethnic Albanian reprisal attacks fled to Serbian northern Mitrovica in 1999, settling down in an abandoned school. (Photo by Chris Hondros/Getty Images)
