Mass shootings: Serbs Surrender 13,500 unregistered weapons

Serbian police in Smederevo presented a collection of surrendered weapons on May 12.

People in Serbia have handed over some 13,500 unregistered weapons and explosive devices to police in an amnesty following two mass shootings this month, President Aleksandar Vucic said on May 14.

The authorities have told citizens to give up illegal weapons by June 8 or face prison sentences, after 17 people — many of them children — were killed and 21 wounded in the two attacks in early May.

“I am proud of this action and the results. It is necessary and important for the greater security of our citizens,” Vucic said.
