A BOSNIA court yesterday jailed an Islamist radical for 18 years over a 2011 gun attack on the US embassy in Sarajevo.

Mevlid Jasarevic shot at the embassy for 50 minutes with an automatic rifle, injuring a policeman before he was shot in the leg and arrested. He said in a video made before the 28 October, 2011, incident he wanted Nato out of Afghanistan.
