The NATO-led peacekeeping force in Kosovo has released two of five Algerians it detained last month on suspicion of terrorist activities, an official said Tuesday.
An investigation into the alleged activities has shown no reason for these two individuals to be detained any longer, Tony Adams, spokesman for the peacekeepers (KFOR), told AFP. "These two are no longer a risk to the safe and secure environment in Kosovo," Adams said.
Five Algerians were arrested last month in two separate intelligence-led operations on suspicion of threatening security in the Serbian province. They were released earlier this month.
The group of five, workers of a humanitarian organization, were sent to KFOR's detention facility in Camp Bondsteel, an estimated 50 kilometers west of Kosovo's main city Pristina, which is home to more than 4,000 US troops serving with the peacekeepers. (Albawaba.com)
