Crossbow attack in front of embassy in Belgrade. Red alert in Serbia

On Saturday morning, a Serbian police officer from the facility’s permanent security was shot with a crossbow in front of the Israeli embassy in Belgrade. In self-defense, the policeman opened fire on the assailant, who succumbed to his injuries.

The officer was taken to hospital with a neck injury, where he underwent surgery. His condition is stable. President Aleksandar Vucic visited the injured man and announced that he would be decorated after he left the hospital.

The head of the Serbian Interior Ministry said the attack was officially considered terrorism. The attacker, identified as Milosz Żujović, moved to Novi Pazar, a town in Sandžak in southern Serbia, after converting to Islam, where the majority of residents – according to the 2011 census – are Bosniaks.
