War Crimes Court Indicts Croatian Serb

November 19, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

The U.N. war crimes tribunal has indicted former Croatian Serb leader Milan Babic on five counts of war crimes in "ethnic cleansing" in the 1990s.

Babic, 47, is accused of seeking to drive non-Serbs from parts of Croatia that prosecutors say he wanted to turn into a "new Serb-dominated state." He was aided by Slobodan Milosevic, who was then president of Serbia, the indictment said.

Babic testified against Milosevic last year, accusing him of fueling war in Croatia.
