Serbian military police have arrested eight foreigners suspected of illegally trying to film or enter the country's military premises, the defence ministry said Monday.
The police had ‘arrested eight foreign citizens for either trying to shoot images of military sites without authorisation or to enter’ them, Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin said in a statement.
Vulin gave no details on the nationality or identity of those arrested.
Serbia's state-run RTS television reported that two US and two Ukrainian nationals were arrested for allegedly trying to film using a drone the building that houses military intelligence.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said late Sunday that the case was ‘not particularly dangerous’.
‘We recently had a bit more serious case, but today's one does not seem to be on that level,’ he said.
Vucic was referring to the arrest in Belgrade earlier this month of a US citizen who illegally possessed a gun. The case was apparently not linked to the arrests reported Monday.
