      More inter-Muslim violence in Serbia

      November 5, 2006 -- At least two people have been shot and one
      held in custody on charges of attempting to commit a murder, after the
      shooter was attacked by members of the Wahabi sect in a southwestern Serbian
      town of Novi Pazar.

      Izet Fijuljanin, 37, was attacked by three members of a Wahabi
      Islamic sect, certain Gicic and two members of Smajilovic family who begun
      pounding with sticks on Fijuljanin's car that was parked in front of the
      Arab Mosque in the city's center.

      Fijuljanin then shot several times in the direction of the
      attackers. Witnesses say that the attackers were hurt.

      Fijuljanin is held in custody on attempted murder charges and
      illegal possession of weapons.

      Witnesses say that this incident is a continuation of violence
      that started on Friday when the group of Wahabi believers entered the Arab
      Mosque with an intent to force the mosque's imam to hold a Wahabi style
      ceremony.

      When the imam Haris Hadzic refused, the Wahabis attacked him and
      a massive brawl between the Muslims broke out.

      During the fighting, Habib Fijuljan shot several times in the
      Mosque's ceiling and the believers started stampeding for the exit.

      It is not clear whether Fijuljan and the Fijuljanin who was
      attacked by the Wahabis later are related. The mosque has been closed.

      Novi Pazar has the largest Slavic speaking Islamic community
      which along with Muslim Albanians represent the minority Muslim communities
      of Serbia.

      Serbia is predominantly a Christian country.
