War Crimes: Bosnian authorities arrest three men on suspicion of complicity in 1995 massacre

Radio Netherlands reports Bosnian authorities have arrested three men on suspicion of complicity in the 1995 massacre in the UN-protected enclave of Srebrenica.

At the time that the Muslim enclave fell, the three men were members of the Bosnian-Serb police force. The arrests took place in eastern and northeastern Bosnia.

Srebrenica was protected by a small contingent of Dutch UN peacekeepers when it was overrun by Bosnian-Serb forces led by General Ratko Mladic. The men and boys were separated from the women and taken away in buses. Some 8000 Muslim men and boys were slaughtered and buried in mass graves.
