The terrorist attack on a police station in this town in the Serb entity (RS) in Bosnia-Herzegovina took place on Monday, April 27.

Serb policeman Dragan Djuric was killed in the attack that took place on April 27, and two other policemen were wounded by the attacker, Nerdin Ibric (24), who stormed into the police station shouting “Allahu Akbar” and was then killed in an exchange of fire.

Kasim Mehidic (30) and Avdulah Hasanovic (24) were brought in for questioning as they have been identified as belonging to a group of radical Islamists- Wahhabists, of which Ibric was also a member.

Hasanovic was recently in Syria, where he fought on the side of the Islamic State, Banja Luka-based daily Glas Srpske reported. The third arrestee is Mughamed Demirovic, Hasanovic's relative.

As Glas Srpske reported, the attacker got the training in the Wahhabi camp in the village of Cerska near Zvornik.

This camp, as well as those near Osmaci and Potocari in the vicinity of Srebrenica, will be included in the further investigation, because of the suspicion that the attacker and instigator of the crime had accomplices in these camps.
