Videotape of Massacres of Muslims Shown at Milosevic Trial


Prosecutors at the war crimes trial of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic have shown a videotape of the 1995 execution of six Bosnian Muslims allegedly by Serbian forces.

Prosecutor Geoffrey Nice said Wednesday a paramilitary unit of the Serbian Interior Minister called the "Scorpions" unit carried out the shootings.

The tape was shot during the massacre of more than 7,000 Muslim males at Srebrenica.

Mr. Milosevic is on trial at the Hague War Crimes Tribunal in connection with the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the 1990s.

Also Wednesday, a former mayor of the Bosnian town of Zvornik turned himself in to a war crimes court in Serbia.

Branko Grujic has been charged with helping deport more than 1,800 Muslims to Hungary and the killings of 15 Muslims in 1992.
