Breaking News

Bosnia's war crimes prosecutor indicted eight Bosnian Serbs on Thursday suspected of taking part in a massacre of more than 200 Muslims and Croats early in the 1992-95 Bosnian war.

The mass killing in central Bosnia occurred on Aug. 21, 1992, as part of an early wave of ethnic cleansing as rebel Bosnian Serb forces clashed with Bosnian Croats and Muslims during the break-up of the former Yugoslavia.

"Damir Ivankovic, Zoran Babic, Gordan Djuric, Milorad Radakovic, Milorad Skrbic, Ljubisa Cetic, Dusan Jankovic and Zeljko Stojnic are charged with crimes against humanity in the area of the northwestern town of Prijedor," the prosecutor's office said.

"They are suspected of taking part in the execution on Mount Vlasic of more than 200 Muslim and Croat civilians who had been taken off the buses that transported them from a Prijedor area detention camp to the central town of Travnik."
