November 05, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Police arrested a Muslim former deputy army commander suspected of killing more than 20 Croat civilians and prisoners of war during the Muslim-Croat war, the state prosecutor's office said.

Nihad Bojadzic, 47, was arrested in central Sarajevo on orders of the state prosecutor.

The mass killing occurred April 16, 1993, during an attack on the southern village of Trusina.

Prosecutors said 19 civilians were killed, along with three Croat soldiers who had previously surrendered.

Bosnian Muslims and Croats entered a 1992-95 war as allies against Serbs, but then waged their own war in 1993-94.
