Brodec operation was successful, State Department deputy spokesman Casey

The operation of the Macedonian police conducted in Brodec village nearby Tetovo was successful, stated State Department deputy spokesman Tom Casey at a regular press briefing in Washington. - It was a successful law enforcement operation conducted by a multiethnic police force against a group, including several wanted criminals, some of whom were recently escaped from a prison in Kosovo, Casey said.

Answering a journalist question, the State Department spokesman said that they didn't have any credible information that the group had Wahhabist ties.

- We're pleased that they nonetheless have been arrested and that some of the materials they were carrying were confiscated. And we certainly encourage the authorities to move quickly to restore normalcy to the village, he stated.
