BOZIDAR KUVELJA ARRESTED FOR SREBRENICA GENOCIDE
Bosnian officials say police have arrested a suspect who allegedly took part in the worst mass-killing in Europe since the Nazi era — the Srebrenica massacre of more than 8,000 Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) men and boys.
Tuesday's statement from the State Prosecutor said Bozidar Kuvelja, 40, was arrested Monday evening. He allegedly served the Bosnian Serb police force during Bosnia's 1992-95 war and killed dozens of the Srebrenica massacre victims.
Meanwhile, Israeli police arrested a former Bosnian Serb soldier Tuesday who also is accused of genocide in Srebrenica. The Bosnian government is seeking his extradition. Srebrenica was overrun by Bosnian Serbs in July 1995. The entire Muslim population was expelled and thousands of men were systematically executed over a few days. Their bodies were hidden in mass graves.
