Serbian Prosecutor Indicts Another Suspect in Vukovar Massacre

Serbia's special war crimes prosecutor has announced the indictment of another suspect in the 1991 massacre of more than 200 Croat civilians outside the Croatian city of Vukovar.

Authorities arrested Sasa Radak last month in Montenegro. He joins 17 other suspects on trial before a special court in connection with the deaths at the Ovcara pig farm outside Vukovar.

Prosecutors say Yugoslav troops took the 200 patients from Vukovar hospital after capturing the Croatian city in November 1991. They say the bodies were later discovered at the farm.

The Hague war crimes tribunal has indicted three Yugoslav army officers for their role in the deaths. Tribunal prosecutors have now suggested that their cases be transferred to local courts either in Croatia or Serbia.
