Croatian Army General Surrenders to Tribunal

July 26, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A Croatian army general surrendered to the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague to face charges that his troops killed dozens of Serb civilians, including elderly disabled women, during the war in Croatia.

Gen. Rahim Ademi faces charges that he oversaw a wartime campaign that left 70 Serb civilians dead and hundreds of homes in ashes.

One of the atrocities involved 10 Croatian soldiers who sprayed a 74-year-old blind woman with gunfire as she sat on the porch of her home, according to the indictment, which was unsealed and published Wednesday.
