Police in Bosnia have arrested five people suspected of trafficking arms to Islamists in Sweden and seized large amounts of weapons and military equipment, officials said on Friday, after a sixth person was held earlier in Sweden. The arrests were made on Thursday during raids on seven locations in northwestern Bosnia by a police counter-terrorism unit in Bosnia's autonomous Serb Republic, said Mirna Miljanovic, head spokeswoman at the region's interior ministry. Miljanovic said the action was in cooperation with Swedish police as part of an international operation codenamed "Wolf RS". All five arrested on Thursday were Bosnian Serbs, and the person detained last week in Sweden was of Bosnian origin, she said. Two others were on the run. Miljanovic declined to give more details of those arrested, but a police source told Reuters the weapons were attended for the Swedish branch of Egypt's Islamist Muslim Brotherhood. Swedish police and security officials declined to comment. The Balkan region has been notorious as a route for smuggling arms into Western Europe.

I’m sure the weapons were intended to be used for normal hunting. I mean really, doesn’t everyone hunt raindeer with surface to air missiles?
Only at Christmas ... looking to salvage whatever presents survive the crash ....

According to the article, this arms trafficking was done by Serbs from the Bosnian Serb zone.
Well, clearly Sweden needs to look at the Root Causes of such extremism, and castigate itself for its war-mongering, oppressive ways.
Yeah I know. But the arms traffic flow to Bosnian Serbs to Jihadists has to be coming from Bosniaks or at least high probability.
Also notice this, “All five arrested on Thursday were Bosnian Serbs, and the person detained last week in Sweden was of Bosnian origin” - the latter Bosniak?
Although I must say there is no love lost in some quarters with the Bosnian Serbs and the West because of what side the west played in the break up of Yugoslavia.
All obama friends?
“It appears that the majority of the groups supplying weapons to Bosnian Muslims (known as Bosniaks) came from Islamic countries among which, Iran, Turkey, Sudan and Saudi Arabia (Wiebes, 2006). Commentators claim that just between May 1994 and January 1996, Iran supplied Bosniaks with about 5,000 tons of arms and ammunition (Anastasijevic, 2006). In fact, one of the largest contingents of weapons that ever entered the Balkan region was in 19941995 and it was shipped from Iran to Bosnia via Croatia, as part of a secret US program helping the Bosnian Army (Aldrich, 2002). The opening of the borders after 1991 enabled easier transport of weapons as well as people across countries.”
The usual suspects using criminal elements from the Serbs to supply the Jihad in western Europe.
you know the FBI is still arresting Bosnia criminals moved here by Bill Clinton in the 90ies
of course, Islam is peace
Ridiculous! The West supported the Jihad against the Christian Serbs and these poor “immigrants”, like Syrian Muslims and Bosniaks are given free passage here.
