Balkans: July 31, 2003


Bosnia reported its State Border Service (border police) arrested a man described as an Egyptian citizen at the Orasje border post. The man was identified as a possible member of an Al Qaeda-linked organization, Al-Islamiya. The mans wife, and three children were traveling with him. RFE reported the man had a forged Belgian passport. Bosnia is trying to make good on promises to arrest Islamist internationalists who have in the past used Bosnia as a base for operations in Europe and the Middle East.
