Bosnian Serb Field Commander Arrested
Goran Markovic, a former field commander of the Bosnian Serb army, has been arrested in Bosnia, according to a report on Radio Svoboda.
Prosecutors have also confirmed that 46-year-old Markovic had been arrested in the north eastern Bosnian town of Bijeljina on Friday morning.
Bosnian Serbs overran Srebrenica on July 11, 1995, in the final phases of Bosnia's 1992-1995 war. Markovic is suspected of involvement in the mass killings of Muslims in the town, when almost 8 000 Muslim men and boys were executed.
The bodies of thousands of the massacre victims have been exhumed over the past years from more than 70 mass graves around the town, with more than 5 600 people having been identified by DNA analysis.
