    A man opened fire outside the U.S. Embassy in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo Friday, shooting at the building in what officials called a terrorist attack. The shooter wounded at least one police officer before being arrested after a 30-minute standoff. The man was dressed in an outfit typical of the Wahhabi branch of Islam, but there’s no word yet on whether he belonged to any group. Bakir Izetbegovic, one of Bosnia’s three presidents, condemned the attack, saying, “The United States is a proven friend of Bosnia-Herzegovina.”
