Police in Bosnia arrested 11 suspected jihadists who were allegedly plotting an attack in Sarajevo.
The cell was planning “a terrorist act during end-of-year celebrations,” according to prosecutor Dubravko Campara.
“They were threatening to carry out an explosives attack in which 100 people would be killed” he told RTRS television. “Physical evidence of the links with the Islamic State group structures were seized."
Prosecutors showed reporters pictures of a printed out Islamic State flag on the wall of a house in Sarajevo where the group was said to have met.
The suspects were arrested on Tuesday and eight of them were remanded in custody for 30 days by a court on Friday.
