Greek authorities arrested in Alexandroupolis a Bosnian and a Yemeni who were travelling with Swedish passports. The official charge is that they had knives in their luggage and in doing so  they broke the Greek law about carrying a weapon. They were arrested in a public transport bus on their way to north Greece and the authorities believe they might be heading for  Syria or Turkey. The two men insist  that they were visiting Greece for tourism and that they had the knives for self defence.

The Bosnian was previously in jail (in Bosnia or Sweden)  because  in his residence were found explosives and also a video in which masked men  threatened with terror attacks in the USA –one of the men in the video, was believed to be the 29 year old Bosnian.
