The Islamic Chiefdom in Bosnia and Herzegovina called on Sunday on Serbian authorities to protect Muslim citizens and their properties after a spate of attacks on Albanian-owned businesses linked to the political provocation seen at the recent football match between Serbia and Albania.
Barre Islamic radio called in a statement on the Government of Serbia to bear its responsibilities towards the citizens and to stop media campaigns against Muslims, which threaten stability of the region.
Prime Minister of Albania Edi Rama in a statement warned that relations between Albanian and Serb people were strained due to the failed football game. He expressed regret that the game resulted in "political dimensions in Serbia." Several attacks on bakeries owned by ethnic Albanians occurred in Serbia's northern province of Vojvodina on Wednesday and Thursday.
The attacks are thought to be linked to the political provocation seen at the football match between Serbia and Albania on Tuesday, when a drone with a map depicting Greater Albania flew into the stadium.
