Bosnian intelligence employee hurls explosive device in tunnel

An employee of Bosnia-Herzegovina's Intelligence and Security Agency (OSA), Zlatko Humo, confessed to having thrown an explosive device in a tunnel near the southern city of Mostar, which exploded in the proximity of a vehicle carrying Bosnian Armed Forces Chief of Staff Ante Jelec, on Friday, and the local prosecutorial authorities on Sunday decided that this had not been a terrorist act but an offence against public safety.

No one was injured in the incident.

Zlatko Humo, a son of local intelligence official Esad Humo, was in a car together with another two persons while they were driving through the Salakovac tunnel when he threw the explosive device. According to media speculations, the explosive device was a strong firecracker that damaged the edge along the tunnel lane.

An investigation is under way.
