Bosnia arrests five ethnic Serbs

Bosnia yesterday arrested five ethnic Serbs for suspected involvement in the killing of more than 60 Muslim civilians, including children, during the country's 1990s war, state prosecutors said.

The five men, former members of the Bosnian Serb police and army, are accused of taking part in a deadly attack on Zaklopaca village in eastern Bosnia on May 16, 1992.

A day after the massacre the victims were buried in mass graves, the prosecutors' statement said, adding that the remains of 54 of them have so far been found.
