A Greek army mechanized infantry company participating in the KFOR contingent controlling strife-torn Kosovo will transfer on Monday to the Mitrovica region in the province's north, the scene of violence in recent days between French peacekeeping troops and ethnic Albanians.
Greece's national defense general staff said the company's tour of duty was part of a normal rotation of units serving in the multinational KFOR contingent. Greek troops are expected to stay in the area until March 5.
