Bosnia Jails Islamists For Planning Attacks

A court in Bosnia has jailed three radical Islamists for up to 4 1/2 years for planning attacks in the Balkan country in 2007-2008.

The trio, led by Rijad Rustempasic, was found guilty on terrorism charges for forming a group that planned attacks against Bosnia's Christian Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Croats during their religious holidays, as well as members of the EU peacekeeping force, EUFOR.

The verdict on November 10 came almost two weeks after an Islamist gunman fired on the U.S. embassy in the capital Sarajevo.
