Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic called an urgent meeting of top security officials on Monday night over what the Serbian State TV (RTS) said was an unspecified deterioration of the situation in the region.

“A meeting is underway which President Vucic called urgently because of the deteriorated situation in the region,” the RTS said.

It added the meeting was being attended by Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic, Internal Affairs Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic, Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin and the country’s top civilian intelligence and security agency (BIA) Director Bratislav Gasic.

No press release was issued after the meeting.

The RTS said in its early morning news on Tuesday that the meeting was called over the beating of a young man in the Montenegrin capital Podgorica during a mass gathering for the return of the national waterpolo team which won the bronze at the European championships. The RTS quoted other media outlets which alleged that the young man had been beaten after he showed the Serb three finger salute.

The RTS said that the BIA would ask its Montenegrin counterpart for more information.
