Bosnian police arrest 8 war crimes suspects
Sarajevo: Police in Bosnia have detained eight Serb men suspected of taking part in looting, expulsions and killing of civilians during the country`s 1992-95 war.
The prosecutor`s office in Bosnia said today the men were arrested in the eastern town of Rogatica where the alleged crimes were committed in September 1992.
One of the arrested men is suspected of gunning down 20 Muslim civilians, including women and children, in a barn where they had been hiding from the Serb soldiers.
Some 100,000 people were killed in the Bosnia`s 1992-1995 that broke out when the country joined several republics of former Yugoslavia and declared independence.
Well-armed Bosnian Serb minority opposed the move and took up arms in its attempt to carve out parts of the country by expelling and killing non-Serbs.
