Serb police raid Islamists after US embassy attack

BELGRADE - Serbian police arrested 15 people in raids on suspected radical Islamists on Saturday after a lone gunman opened fire with an assault rifle on the US embassy in neighboring Bosnia, Serbia's Interior Ministry said.
Friday's broad daylight attack in the Bosnian capital paralyzed central Sarajevo and had shopkeepers scrambling for cover as the gunman paced up and down firing on the embassy before a police sharpshooter wounded him and he was arrested.One police officer was also wounded in the attack and several bullets struck the wall of the embassy compound.
Police in Serbia said they had conducted raids in three towns in southwestern Serbia, including the mainly Muslim Novi Pazar, the hometown of the gunman identified as 23-year-old Mevludin Jasarevic.
