Police arrest 4 Bosnian Muslims for war crimes

Police have arrested four former Bosnian Army soldiers suspected of having killed 19 civilians and three soldiers during an attack on a Bosnian Croat village during the country's 1992-95 war.
The state prosecutor's office in Sarajevo said Wednesday that Nedzad Hodzic, Mensur Memic, Dzevad Salcin and Senad Hakalovic were arrested in four different cities in Bosnia.
They were allegedly part of a Muslim-dominated Bosnian Army unit that attacked the village of Trusina, 30 miles (50 kilometers) south of Sarajevo, in April 1993. Nineteen civilians and three Bosnian Croat soldiers who had surrendered there were killed.
Four civilians, including two young children, were injured.
Police also raided the homes and offices of 17 people throughout the country searching for evidence in the case.
