Bosnian Serb officials claim that they have arrested 6 terrorists and seized their weapons ‘en route to Swedish militants’.

Six people have been arrested on suspicion of smuggling weapons to radical Islamists in Sweden, the Local reported, citing Bosnian Serb authorities.

Five of the suspected weapons smugglers were seized in the towns Gradiska and Laktasi in Republika Srpska, its Interior Ministry said on Friday. Another person had previously been arrested in Sweden, while another two remained at large, officials said.

Large quantities of weapons were found during police raids, which were carried out as part of a Swedish-run operation, according to media reports, which were not immediately confirmed by Swedish authorities.
