Two videos threatening terrorist attacks in Bosnia posted

Two videos have been posted on social networks in which two Bosniaks in the Syrian war zone call for terrorist attacks in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and the execution of the head of the Islamic Community in BiH, Husein Kavazovic.

Wahhabi Amir Selimovic, originally of Zivinice in northeastern BiH, posted a video on YouTube in which he threatens Bosniaks, enemy media and Kavazovic. According to the media, he has been fighting for Islamic State in Syria since the end of 2014.

The Vijesti Ummeta web portal, known for its support to Islamic State, has released a video in which a certain Ebula Mua’tezu el Bosnija announces his return to BiH and the execution of terrorist attacks. The portal says this man has been killed and that he was a member of Islamic State, without revealing his true identity or how he has been killed.
