SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) - The Bosnian state
prosecutor's office says it has filed terrorism charges against
three people involved in a shooting attack on the U.S. embassy in
Sarajevo last October.

Prosecutors said in a statement Monday that Mevlid Jasarevic,
Emrah Fojnica and Munib Ahmetspahic are charged with preparing and
carrying out the attack to try to force NATO to pull out of
Afghanistan.

The three are followers of the Wahhabi sect - an austere brand
of Sunni Islam.

Jasarevic, 23, fired with an automatic rifle for 50 minutes on
the embassy in Sarajevo, injuring one local policeman before
authorities ended his spree with a shot in his leg.

The other two are accused of obtaining the weapon and later
trying to hide evidence.
