Three war crimes suspects arrested in Bosnia

Three war crimes suspects have been arrested near the city of Banja Luka in Bosnia. Lazar Ristic, Petar Arsenic and Predrag Devic were arrested on Wednesday on a warrant from the State Prosecution.

All three men are suspected of participation in war crimes committed by Serb forces in Sanski Most.

According to the prosecution report, on October 10, 1995 in Marjanovici, a small village near Sanski Most, 15 Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims) were killed, the day before Bosnian Serb forces left the city.

During the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, from 1992 to 1995, approximately 100,000 people were killed. Thousands were wounded, detained in camps and tortured.

After their arrest, Ristic, Arsenic and Devic were taken to a detention facility in Bihac and questioned by the prosecutor. They were arrested by members of the State Investigation and Protection Agency, SIPA.
