“I firmly condemn the terrorist attack on the US embassy in Bosnia-Hercegovina, I expect the competent authorities to carry out a quick and efficient investigation of this senseless act,” Izetbegovic, the Muslim member of Bosnia’s three-man presidency said in a statement.

“The person who fired an automatic weapon was wounded and arrested during the police operation. After receiving medical treatment on the scene the person was hospitalised,” police spokesman Irfan Nefic told national BHT television.
