A Molotov cocktail has been thrown on early Saturday morning at the Kosovo’s president offices, police said.

According to the statement, masked attackers threw the explosive and then broke the windows of an office used by outgoing President Ahtifete Jahjaga's staff.

It was the latest in a string of attacks on public buildings with Molotov cocktails and on senior officials with eggs.

Many times since September, Kosovo opposition tried to block the parliament’s work inside and outside the parliament.

Opposition members of parliament set off teargas inside the parliament to protest two deals with Serbia and Montenegro that they say undermine Kosovo's sovereignty.

Additionally, opposition supporters clashed with police to protest the deal.

The opposition has not accepted last month's election of Hashim Thaci, former foreign minister and leader of a governing political party, as Kosovo's next president, It is contesting his election at the Constitutional Court.
