Serbian Outlaws May Face Arrest Soon
On July 11 the Bosnian town of Srebrenica will mark the 10th anniversary of Europe's worst war crime since 1945 -- the massacre by Bosnian Serb forces of 7,000 Muslim men and boys. The anniversary follows the release of graphic film footage of the massacre, which prompted new arrests. That has fed speculation that the two chief suspects, former Bosnian Serb leaders Radovan Karadzic and General Ratko Mladic, who are wanted by The Hague's U.N. war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, may soon be arrested. Serbian human-rights activist Natasa Kandic, whose Humanitarian Law Center documents atrocities, recently predicted that the arrests will happen "this year, the 10th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre."
