    SARAJEVO, April 13 (Reuters) - Bosnia's state court on Thursday indicted on terrorism charges three men from Turkey, Sweden and Bosnia, who local media reported had been planning attacks on Western embassies in Sarajevo. Police arrested the three men in October and confiscated explosives and weapons found during raids in Sarajevo. The arrest of four Muslims in Denmark shortly afterwards was said to be connected to the Bosnia arrests. The court said it had confirmed the indictment issued by the state prosecutor against Swedish citizen Mirsad Bektasevic, 19, Turk Cesur Abdulkadir, 21, and Bosnian citizen Bajro Ikanovic. It extended their detention for a maximum of one year. Bektasevic, who has Bosnian roots, and Abdulkadir are in addition indicted for preventing an official from performing his duties. Another two Bosnians, who were arrested in November in connection with the trio, were indicted for illegal possession of weapons and explosives but they were released from detention, the court said. The police did not provide details about their findings but local media reported they had found some 30 kg (66 lb) of explosives and an arsenal of weapons, including a suicide-bomb vest, during the October raids. Police had also found a videotape showing them asking God for forgiveness for what they were going to do, as well as laptops and mobile phones containing lists that included the names of the suspects arrested in Denmark, according to media reports. Bosnia, where mostly liberal Muslims make up almost half of the population, has been in the spotlight since the 2001 Islamic militants' attacks on the United States because of hundreds of former Islamic fighters who stayed in Bosnia after the 1992-95 war. Six Algerians who were arrested in Bosnia on suspicion of planning attacks on the U.S. and British embassies in late 2001 were handed over to Washington in early 2002 and have been detained at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay base in Cuba since.
