Police have to establish if the user of the phone number really has anything to do with the fire, Zeljka Radosevic of the Split-Dalmatia County Police told press on Sunday, adding that Interpol was now involved in the case.
Slobodna Dalmacija said yesterday that "an unidentified man called (us) from a hidden number on Friday and claimed responsibility, on behalf of the Serbian Revolutionary Movement, for the fire in the military barracks near Knin. He added that he would attack the police station, swore on ethnic grounds and hung up."
The fire broke out on Tuesday and was contained on Friday morning. It spread to a military barracks, causing the detonation of old explosives and the evacuation of the local population.
