Serb genocide suspects arrested

Police in Bosnia have arrested three former Serb policemen suspected of committing genocide in the Bosnian war.

According to police reports, the three men were among the Bosnian Serb forces who overran the UN-protected enclave of Srebrenica in July 1995.

They then allegedly took part in the execution of some 8,000 Muslims.

It is the only episode of the Bosnian war that has been ruled a genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
