DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

The Office of the State Prosecutor of Bosnia & Herzegovina said Dragan Neskovic (37) was arrested Wednesday in the northeastern town of Bijeljina. A former Bosnian Serb police officer suspected of taking role in the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, has been placed into custody.

Bosnian Serb forces systematically executed more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys, forcibly expelled 30,000 Bosniak refugees and brutally raped hundreds of women and girls in the July 1995 Srebrenica genocide. According to the judgement of the International Criminal Tribunal, Serb forces targeted for extinction a total of 40,000 Bosniak people in the Srebrenica enclave.

Dragan Neskovic is suspected of directly participating in mass killings of unarmed Muslims.

Victims were shot while trying to escape through woods or seized and taken to places of execution before being buried in mass graves.

Srebrenica genocide is Europe's first genocide since the Holocaust and the only legally established case of genocide on the continent. It is the worst atrocity since World War Two.
