Kosovo identity card
The Kosovo[a] Identity Card is an ID card issued to the citizens of Kosovo for the purpose of establishing their identity, as well as serving as proof of residency, right to work and right to public benefits.
More than 10,000 ethnic Serbs residing within Kosovo have had their names Albanized, e.g. from Nikolić to Nikoliqi, Petrović to Petroviqi. Certain Serbian sources have described this as ethnic cleansing.
