He is the second resident of Kosovo arrested in the last two months on suspicion of being a jihadist, Priština-based daily Lajm reports.

The police, according to Lajm, recorded his mobile phone conversations with jihadists in Syria.

Zejnulahu subsequently entered Albania to reach Syria via Turkey, which caused suspicion that made controllers at the airport in Tirana act.

Lajm reports that confusing statements by Zejnulahu further increased the suspicion that eventually led to his arrest.

The Kosovo authorities issued an international arrest warrant for Zejnulahu earlier.
