Bosnian Authorities Arrest Fugitive Bosnian Serb War Crimes Suspect

Authorities in northern Bosnia-Herzegovina have arrested a fugitive Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect.

A spokesman for Bosnia's Prosecutor's Office says members of the State Investigation and Protection Agency and Bosnian Serb police apprehended Predrag Kujundzic Wednesday in the northern town of Doboj.

Kujundzic was a commander of a special unit of Bosnian Serb forces during the Balkan conflict of the 1990s.

He is suspected of violating laws and customs of war in the Doboj region on several occasions during 1992 and the following year.

The spokesman said Kujundzic was arrested on the order of the country's central Prosecutor's Office and is being held in a court detention facility in Sarajevo.
