Bosnian police raid conservative Muslim village 

Police are searching a highly conservative Bosnian Muslim village looking for evidence related to an attack on the U.S. embassy in Sarajevo last October.

The prosecutor's office said in a statement that no further details can be released about Wednesday's raid on Gornja Maoca except that it is related to terrorism suspect Mevlid Jasarevic.

Police have raided the isolated northeast Bosnian village several times before because some of the residents were suspected of posing a security threat by promoting racial and religious hatred and illegally possessing weapons.

Two residents were accused of driving Jasarevic to Sarajevo, where he shot at the embassy building and injured a policeman before police shot him in his leg and arrested him.
