Police arrest war crimes suspect

Police have arrested a Bosnian Serb suspected of participating in the murder of about 200 Bosniaks and Bosnian Croats in 1992.

The office of the state prosecutor in Sarajevo said today that 43-year-old Marinko Ljepoja was arrested in the northern town of Prijedor on suspicion of crimes against humanity.

Ljepoja was allegedly a member of a Bosnian Serb unit which took about 200 Bosniak and Bosnian Croat male civilians to a 330-feet cliff in central Bosnia, shot them and pushed them over the edge.
