Two LDS Sister Missionaries Recover after Attack in Kosovo
(KUTV) The Associated Press reports that two of the attackers may be affiliated with a group of men arrested for allegedly plotting a terrorist attack.

The LDS church said in a statement that two sister missionaries were victims of a beating in Kosovo and have since been moved out of that area.  Church spokesperson Cody Craynor said,  "Gratefully they are making a full recovery."

The Associated Press also reported that the attack on the missionaries happened around November 3rd. On November 5th, the beating suspects and four others, all ethnic Albanians, were arrested for allegedly planning a terrorist attack.  Police said they found a sniper rifle, handguns and explosive materials at the suspects' houses.

An elder serving in the same mission, posted on his blog that the American embassy in Kosovo reported that the attackers were part of a larger group that has unfriendly feelings toward the LDS church.  That missionary also said the sister missionaries were beaten with flashlights and that since the attack, missionaries in that area travel in packs of four.

The mother of one of the victims told us over the phone the two young women are recovering and made the decision to continue serving, although in a different mission area.
