"A man armed with hand grenades and an automatic weapon has opened fire outside the U.S. Embassy in Bosnia in what authorities called a terrorist attack. A policeman and the gunman were wounded, but the embassy said none of its employees was hurt. Sarajevo Mayor Alija Behmen said Friday that the gunman 'got off a tram with a Kalashnikov and started shooting at the American Embassy.' Witnesses told Bosnian television that the man urged pedestrians to move away, saying he was targeting only the embassy." (10/29/11)
