A Serbian man has been detained after pictures posted on Facebook appeared to show him setting the Muslim holy book on fire using a lighter.
Prosecutor for cybercrime Branko Stamenkovic said Wednesday that the man is suspected of inciting "religious hatred and intolerance." He faces up to eight years in prison.
Stamenkovic identified the suspect as Predrag Cosovic from the capital of Belgrade. He says police detained Cosovic on Tuesday, a day after he allegedly posted the photos of the Quran burning.
