Bosnian Police Arrest Srebrenica Massacre Suspect


Police in Bosnia-Herzegovina have arrested a Bosnian Serb police officer suspected of a role in the Srebrenica massacre.

Prosecutors in Sarajevo say Zoran Tomic was a member of a Serb special police unit that operated in the Srebrenica area in 1995, after Serb forces overran the town, which the United Nations previously had declared a Muslim safe-area.

Prosecutors say Tomic is suspected of searching Muslim homes in the area and a role in the detention of more than a thousand Muslim men in the village of Kravice where the detainees were executed in a warehouse

Serb forces executed an estimated 8,000 Muslim men and boys after capturing Srebrenica. The massacre is considered the worst atrocity in Europe since World War II.
