Kosovo police arrest 5 members of Muslim sect for plotting armed attacks
Kosovo police say five men belonging to a Muslim sect have been arrested for plotting armed attacks.
Police spokesman Arber Beka says 120 policemen took part in the arrest of two ethnic Albanians and three minority Muslim Bosniaks in the western town of Prizren early Saturday. Police found machine-guns, hand guns and military uniforms in at least eight locations in the town. Five laptop computers believed to hold data about possible targets were also seized.
Beka could not say if the five are suspected of having links to international terrorism but did not deny the possibility.
No details were given about the nature of the allegedly planned attacks.
Most people in secular Kosovo are Muslim.
