Serbian police have arrested Milorad Pejic, now a British citizen, on suspicion of involvement in the massacre of Croatian prisoners in 1991, the Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor's Office said.

A statement by the office said Pejic, an ethnic Serb born in Croatia, was suspected of taking part in the killing of more than 200 Croatian prisoners in Ovcara, near Vukovar.

Pejic, who was arrested on an international warrant March 19 at Belgrade airport, has been living in Britain, the office said.
