Ten Former Bosnian Serb Officials Arrested for War Crimes

Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina

Ten former high-ranking Bosnian Serb officials were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of killing dozens of Muslim civilians at the start of 1992-1995 Bosnian war.

Police in Bosnia on Tuesday arrested the former military and police officials during raids at several locations in the northeastern part of the country.

The men are accused of planning, leading and participating in a July 1992 operation in which 120 civilians, including women and children, were expelled from their homes in the northeastern village of Lokanj. Sixty-seven of them were later shot dead.

More than 100,000 people were killed in the Bosnian war, while another two million became refugees.
