Former Bosnian Serb soldiers arrested under suspicion of mass killings and torture

Bosnian police arrested six former Bosnian Serb soldiers under suspicion of being involved in the killings of 27 Muslim Bosnians during the 1992-1995 Bosnian war.

The arrested men allegedly separated 27 men from their families, tortured them and made them dig their own mass grave before killing and burying them. Following the end of the war, the suspects are thought to have uncovered the remains they could find and dispose of them into the river to avoid being caught in the future.

A statement from the prosecution office released on Tuesday said the men were arrested in northwest Bosnia on suspicion of participating in the expulsion, torture and killings of the Muslim Bosniak population in the area.
