Some of the arms believed to be used in last month's deadly Paris attacks, were manufactured in Serbia's arms factory, including one exported to U.S. in 2013, a company official said Friday.Following the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, Serbia's interior ministry was asked by French police and Interpol to check serial numbers of seven pieces of weapons believed to have been manufactured in Zastava, Brzakovic said."We have strictly controlled trade of arms and military equipment, nothing goes out of the factory without the approval of the Serbian government and export licence," Brzakovic insisted.He had no explanation how the legally sold weapons, including the pistol exported to the U.S., ended up in the hands of attackers in Paris.Most of the weapons linked with the Paris attacks were manufactured and sent to army barracks throughout communist Yugoslavia before its bloody break up in a series of wars in the 1990s.
