The city’s water board said supply was cut early on Saturday “because of security issues” and that supplies had been tested for suspicious substances.

The Independent reports that the tests carried out by the Kosovo Institute for National Health had not detected any toxic content in the water.

The worries about the city’s water system emerged after five people linked to ISIS were arrested on Friday. Police sources say that security officers patrolling the Badovac reservoir saw three of the men, whose identities have not yet been disclosed, behaving suspiciously near the reservoir. The reservoir supplies water to about half of Pristina, a city of more than 200,000 people. Two additional suspects were later arrested in a small town a few miles from Pristina....
