Serb suspected in Kosovo war crimes arrested

Serbia's war crimes prosecutors say a suspect sought for atrocities against civilians during Kosovo's 1998-99 war has been arrested in a Belgrade suburb.
They said Friday former paramilitary fighter Sinisa Misic is wanted in the killing of 11 ethnic Albanians in the western Kosovo village of Cuska in 1999.
The prosecutors say he was arrested Friday after hiding for years.
Prosecutors say the crime is among the most brutal of the Kosovo war. Serb paramilitaries allegedly rounded up the villagers, robbed them, separated women and children from men, locked the men in a house and set it on fire.
Another nine members of a paramilitary unit are on trial in Belgrade. Two more are on the run.
Serbia has moved to deal with its wartime past as it seeks EU membership.
