SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Bosnian prosecutors on Friday said they have indicted six men on terrorism charges over a bomb attack at a police station that killed one officer and injured five others.

Prosecutors said in a statement that the six Bosnian nationals were charged with committing a "crime of terrorism" to intimidate and destabilize the country's "political, constitutional and social structures."The charges are related to a June attack at a police station in the central Bosnian town of Bugojno, 47 miles (75 kilometers) southwest of Sarajevo.

Local media have reported that the men, arrested shortly after the attack, were followers of a radical interpretation of Islam known as Wahhabism.
