Britain in diplomatic row over Bosnian leader's arrest





Britain is at the centre of a new diplomatic dispute after former Bosnian president Ejup Ganic was arrested at Heathrow at the request of his former rivals in Serbia.

Police detained Ejup Ganic on suspicion of being involved in a 1992 massacre despite the charges having already been dismissed by a UN war tribunal.

It left the British government facing another embarrassing diplomatic dispute just weeks after it was condemned by Israel for failing to guarantee Tzipi Livni, the former foreign minister, would not be arrested on war crimes charges.
