MUNICH, Germany (Reuters) - A group of Serbia fans chanted "Kosovo is the heart of Serbia" in central Munich's Marienplatz, where they gathered ahead of their team's game with Slovenia on Thursday, in the latest in a series of political gestures by fans at Euro 2024 relating to the Balkans.

Serbia are demanding that European soccer's governing body UEFA punishes Croatia and Albania after accusing their fans of hateful chanting during their Euro 2024 clash in Hamburg on Wednesday.

Serbia have themselves been charged by UEFA for incidents during their Group C defeat by England last Saturday, when their supporters displayed a banner that "transmitted a provocative message unfit for a sports event".
