BBC News with Jerry Smit.

The Macedonian President has accused a group of gunmen involved in deadly clashes with police of planning to carry out terror attacks to destabilize the country. In a televised address, President Gjorge Ivanov said police had thwarted the extremists when they confronted them in the northern town of Kumanovo at the weekend. The Macedonian authorities identified several of their leaders as ethnic Albanians from Kosovo. More than 20 people, including 8 police, were killed in the violence. The spokesman for the Macedonian Interior Ministry, Ivo Kotevski, said the battle had been intense. The authorities met with fierce resistance from the terrorists, who used automatic weapons, grenades and snap fire. We responded to the attack with the utmost care and in a manner which was most appropriate to the situation.
