U.S. extradites war crimes suspect in 1990s

The United States on Tuesday extradited a Muslim Bosnian woman suspected of killing six Croats in 1993 during a war that ripped the region apart, the prosecutor’s office in Sarajevo, Bosnia, said.

The woman, Rasema Handanovic, 39, is suspected of taking part in the mass killings of Croatian civilians in Bosnia and Herzegovina in April 1993, when she was a member of a special unit of the Bosnian Army, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
