The Assembly of the Republic of Kosovo votes 89–0 to pass a resolution officially condemning the Srebrenica massacre and establishing a commemerative holiday for its victims. Serb minority-interests party Serb List boycotted the vote.

The Prime Minister of Kosovo Isa Mustafa says the train had been stopped "to protect the country's sovereignty".
