Bosnia: 2 suspected of helping US embassy shooter

Bosnia has arrested two men suspected of helping a gunman who opened fire with an automatic weapon outside the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo.

A statement from the state prosecutor's office Wednesday said 24-year-old Dino Pecenkovic, and Munib Ahmetpasic, 21, were arrested and should remain in custody during a one-month investigation period.

The two are accused of participating in an act of terrorism by driving gunman Mevlid Jasarevic from their northern Bosnian village of Gornja Maoca to the embassy last Friday.

Jasarevic injured a policeman before a police sniper ended his 30 minute-long shooting spree with a shot to his leg. He was detained Monday after being released from hospital.
