Police in Montenegro have arrested 20 Serbs suspecting of planning politically motivated armed attacks amid a parliamentary election Sunday that could determine whether the small Balkan state continues on its Western course or turns back to traditional ally Russia.The parliamentary vote pitted the Democratic Party of Socialists against a cluster of pro-Russian and pro-Serbian opposition groups that staunchly oppose the government's pro-Western policies, especially its NATO bid.Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, meanwhile, hinted that the arrests might have been staged by the government.Before the vote, Djukanovic said the ballot for the 81-seat parliament will decide whether Montenegro continues on a Western course or becomes "a Russian colony".After splitting with Serbia in a 2006 referendum, Montenegro took a strong turn toward Western integrations.
