Sarajevo. A gunman with an automatic weapon opened fire at the United States embassy in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Friday and police rushed to the scene, a Reuters witness said. A Reuters photographer said police were trying to surround the gunman, who was armed with a Kalashnikov rifle. A source close to the embassy said two security guards had been wounded. The U.S. embassy is located in the central business, university and shopping district of the capital.
Sudden Jihad Syndrome
why do we have troops there?
Ask Billy Jeff, to protect muslims.
They shot up my Iltis(jeep) when I was there in 1994 , it was full of holes, It still ran and would whistle
I believe all of our embassies have Marine guards.
Looks like the Kalashnikov has been downgraded from “assault rifle.”
America, making the world safe for Islamic Jihadists.
(note 4/5 length of the pants and beard)
The United States is diplomatic and military arm of Islamic terrorism.
Without United States' military support to Islamic terrorism, there would be no Islamist Bosnia today.
Nor Islamist Libya.
Chicken are coming home to roost.
......imagine that...who would have thought...
Wake up America, the Clintons lied and Christians died.
heez dead now...
“A gunman opened fire at the US embassy in Sarajevo Friday before being taken out by a sniper, Bosnian radio reported, identifying the attacker as a radical Islamist, AFP reported.
“A man, member of the Wahhabi (branch of Islam), aged around 40, shot at the US embassy with a Kalashnikov rifle,” Bosnian national radio said.”
That’s a lot of info real fast.
Fox just reported that he got out of a car being driven by someone else, so they must be looking for others.
yes, other stories note others are being sought....
Looks like a M70 to me:
Note folding stock (”A” variants), and the 3 slots on the foregrip.
WeaselZippers has video of the jihadi *sshole getting shot.
The report in post#16 says he survived
Before Bosnian civil war started in 1992, Bosnian Muslim Patriotic League got in possession of 100,000 assault rifles from the Army and NG depots. Most were M70. I wonder if there are any AK-47 in Bosnia - there was no need for them when M70 was plentiful. Also, before civil war no one called M70 "AK" or "Kalasnikov". It is colloquial use by people who are not familiar with weapons, hence Bosnian media reports of "Kalasnikov rifle".
Yugoslav armament industry was copycat but capable of producing significantly improved originals - be it Mouser M98 Carbines (Zastava M48), Sig handguns (CZ-99), Dragunov sniper or AK-47. They improved even when under licence agreement (e.g. Zastava made Skorpion M84 submachine pistol)
“Balkan jihadists seek to distance themselves from themselves”
SNIPPET: “I’ll admit to a certain morbid amusement at finding the Balkan jihadi site putvjernika.com attempting to distance themselves from the attack on the US embassy in Sarajevo:”
