Montenegrins Go To Polls In Election Billed As Russia Versus West

Voters in Podgorica headed to the polls on October 16 in a parliamentary election that is being billed as a choice between Russia and the West. The long-ruling Democratic Party of Socialists is facing pro-Russian and pro-Serbian opposition groups that strongly oppose the country's NATO bid and path toward joining the European Union. Amid rising tensions in the tiny Balkan nation, police say they have arrested 20 Serbian nationals suspected of planning armed attacks after voting closes. (RFE/RL's Balkan Service)
