Two young man with Swedish passports, a 19-year-old and a 25-year-old were arrested in Sarajevo on 17 November, suspected of killing a 31-year-old Swedish gang leader in the Bosnian capital on 31 October. Another gang member, a 22-year-old from Norrköping was wounded in the same assassination attempt. The killed gang member was already a target of an attack earlier, on 6 September in Istanbul.

According to Swedish media the arrested 19-year-old is from Malmö, is suspect in the attempted killing of the father in law of Rawa M, the leader of the Foxtrot network, in Uppsala on 13 September. He is apparently already known by authorities since he was 13 years old. | © 2023 Marcel Burger,
