Nine ISIS adherents indicted on terror charges in Kosovo

Nine Islamic State activists have been indicted in Kosovo on charges of planning a series of terrorist attacks in Albania and Kosovo, including one they intended to carry out against Israel's national football team during its World Cup qualifying match against Albania last November, prosecutors in Kosovo said Wednesday. The men were among 19 arrested before the match on suspicion of planning the attacks. Kosovo's prosecution said the men received orders from one of the top Albanians in Islamic State. The November 12 Israel-Albania match was moved to a venue near the Albanian capital due to concern over the possibility of an attack.
