Muslims in Kosovo were planning on attacking a Christian monastery, according to one Serbian report:
Kosovo police were investigating on Monday after the four armed suspects were detained near the monastery near the town of Decan/Decani in western Kosovo on Saturday night.
Police said they were following the suspects’ vehicle for some time and after searching it, they found an AK assault rifle, a pistol and some ammunition.
They said the four suspects were being charged with the illegal possession of firearms.
The Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Raska and Prizren said however that the suspects were “armed Islamists”.
Sava Janjic, the abbot of the Visoki Decani monastery, condemned the police for not treating the incident as terrorism-related.
“The Kosovo police statement is a pathetic downplaying of a possible serious incident and an insult to common sense,” Janjic said.
He also said that the incident was yet another indication that the presence of NATO KFOR troops near the monastery was highly important.
Those arrested are expected to face formal charges within the next 48 hours.
