Statement by the U.S. Embassy in Zagreb

We understand that several media outlets have published a story claiming that U.S. Marines detained Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Evelin Tonković and Head of the Office for Special Security Željko Renić on the grounds of the U.S. Embassy in Zagreb.  This story is completely untrue.  No such incident occurred.

The U.S. Embassy values its excellent relations with the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
