      Attacker on a Bosnia mosque detained

      dpa German Press Agency
      Published: Saturday November 4, 2006

      Sarajevo/Mostar- Bosnian police, with the support of Croatian police,
      detained near Mostar a suspect in an attack on a mosque near the southern
      Bosnia-Herzegovinan city of Mostar, police confirmed Saturday. The person
      arrested Friday was identified by unofficial sources as Bosnian Croat Josip
      Grbesic. He is accused of badly damaging a mosque in the Mostar suburb of
      Jasenice with a rocket-propelled grenade.

      The suspect, according to police report, has admitted the crime.

      The October 10 attack coincided with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The
      Jesenice mosque, badly damaged during the 1992-1995 war in
      Bosnia-Herzegovina, was rebuilt in recent years.

      Mostar remains ethnically divided between Bosnian Croats, who control the
      western part of the city, and Bosnian Muslims on the eastern side.
