Israel Arrests Bosnia Genocide Suspect

An Israeli citizen has been arrested upon an extradition request from Bosnia over his alleged involvement in the 1995 mass murder in Srebrenica.

Israel's Justice Ministry said Aleksandar Cvetkovic, an immigrant from the former Yugoslavia, was arrested on Tuesday and that prosecutors would seek court approval to extradite him to Bosnia for trial on charges of genocide, the Jerusalem Post reported on its website.

In late August, Bosnian officials asked Israel to arrest and extradite Cvetkovic over his alleged involvement in Srebrenica killings at the peak of the 1992-95 civil war in former Yugoslavia.
