Kosovo police 'foil Daesh attack' on Israeli football team

Kosovan police say they have foiled a plot by Daesh to attack the Israeli football team when it visited Albania last week, BBC reports.

Nineteen arrests were made ahead of Israel's World Cup qualifier and the group is also suspected of planning attacks inside Kosovo itself.

Explosive devices and weapons were found along with "extremist" literature, police say.

The match was moved from one Albanian city to another as a result.

Police say the group was coordinated by two Albanians members of Daesh in Syria.
