Macedonian police say a group of about 40 people wearing uniforms of the disbanded Kosovo Liberation Army, or UCK, have attacked a police watchtower in Gosince on the country's northern border with Kosovo.

The UCK, an ethnic Albanian paramilitary group, fought Serb government forces for Kosovo independence in 1998-1999. In Macedonia, Albanian rebels fought government forces for more rights for minority Albanians in 2001.
