"...In Kosovo and Macedonia, militants who have fought alongside Syrian rebels told RFE/RL that they wanted to help "Sunni brothers" fight Assad’s regime.One fighter from Macedonia said he hooked up with Syrian rebels via an intermediary in Vienna.Suspicion falls upon Salafists as recruiters because Salafism is the root-ideology of Al-Qaeda and its affiliates -- including the rebel Al-Nusra Front in Syria, which is considered a terrorist group by Washington.Bosnia-Herzegovina has the strongest Salafist presence in the Balkans due to aid and investments by Saudi Arabians who are members of the fundamentalist sect. ..."
