Croatia arrested seven people on Oct. 19 on suspicion of committing war crimes in neighboring Bosnia in 1995, a state prosecution spokeswoman told state radio. Police and state prosecution office confirmed the arrests, but declined to give an exact number of those involved or to provide any other details. The radio said seven former members of the Croatian military were arrested over the killing of five Serb prisoners of war in the Bosnian village of Mliniste in 1995 during an operation by Croat and Muslim forces against Bosnian Serbs. Under an agreement between the Croatian and Bosnian governments, the Croatian army fought alongside Bosnian troops against Bosnian Serbs forces in the summer of 1995. (Reuters)
