Around 1,500 Muslims protested today in the Macedonian capital, Skopje,
demanding the release of the radical Islamists who were arrested by the

Christians", "War on the Christians", and brandished Al Qaeda insignias.
Macedonian police have arrested three of five suspects directly
implicated with the horrific crime, the likes of which Macedonia has not
seen since WWII. All the neighbouring countries have offered their
support to the Macedonian Interior Ministry for the capture of the two
remaining suspects, who are on the run and for whom Interpol warrants
have already been issued.
