A café named Osama outside the Serbian capital Belgrade has been asked to change its name after diplomats in US embassy opposite the café opposed to the name.

Café owner Milomir Jeftic said the word Osama meant 'secluded' in Serbo-Croat and he named his shop after a local shelter for the homeless.

But now he has been told to change the name after an official complaint from the US Embassy, reports Fox News.

He said: "I had no intention of offending Americans. It is just a word in Serbian. I admit I have heard of Osama Bin Laden, but until now I was not quite sure who he was".
