    Radical Muslim violence a growing threat to Serbia

    BELGRADE, Serbia-Police arrested three suspected Islamic extremists on Thursday in a continuing crackdown in a southern region with a sizable Muslim community.

    The three men, identified as Aladin Pulic, 22, Erhan Smailovic, 32 and Husein Culjak, 29, were apprehended in the southern city of Novi Pazar, 175 kilometers (110 miles) south of Belgrade, police said. Six others were detained in the city in March, allegedly in possession illegal weapons and accused of plotting terror attacks, police said.

    All are believed to be followers of the extreme Wahhabi branch of Sunni Islam.

    The six arrested in March used a mountain cave as a terrorist training ground, packed with plastic explosives, masks and machine guns, police said. Authorities said they believed they were planning attacks in Serbia or elsewhere, in cooperation with other Islamic terrorist groups.

    A leader of the local Wahhabis was killed in April while resisting arrest.
