'Monster of Grbavica' held in Spain for Bosnian war crimes





panish police have arrested a man wanted for war crimes during the Bosnian conflict from 1992 to 1995, the Interior Ministry said in a statement Tuesday.

The suspect, Veselin Vlahovic, born in Montenegro in 1969, was sought on three international arrest warrants for more than a hundred murders of women and children, as well as rape and torture, the statement said.

Vlahovic was known as "the monster of Grbavica" -- the name of the neighborhood of Sarajevo where he allegedly committed the crimes.

He was arrested by Spanish police investigating a criminal gang from Eastern Europe that committed armed robbery in Spain, the statement said.
