Former Bosnian general arrested for 'war crimes'

A former general who fought with Bosnian Muslim forces during the country's 1990s conflict was arrested in Sarajevo yesterday on charges of committing war crimes against Serb civilians, a prosecutor said.

Ramiz Drekovic, 62, is the third general from Bosnian Muslims (Bosniak) troops to be accused of war crimes in the past three years by local authorities.

Originally from Serbia, Drekovic was a captain in the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) before Yugoslavia unravelled in 1991 through a series of conflicts that left 130,000 people dead, mostly in the Bosnian war.
