Serbia arrests former Bosnian soldier over war crimes

Serbian police announced that they have arrested a former Bosnian military commander, over alleged war crimes committed against Serb civilians in Sarajevo.

The Bosnian embassy in Belgrade reported that the former soldier was arrested on a Serbian warrant. 

The arrest comes as the Humanitarian Law Centre said this week that the Serbian government is stalling on prosecuting war crimes and seems to have set a strategy of “waiting for time to do its work”.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
