Serbian news reports say police in Belgrade have arrested a war crimes suspect wanted in connection with the killing of at least 19 civilians during the Balkan conflict of the 1990s.
Prosecutors identified the suspect as Darko Jankovic. They say the killings took place in 1992 near the town of Zvornik in eastern Bosnia-Herzegovina. No further details were released.
Zvornik, located on the border with Serbia, was the scene of killings, torture and deportations early in the 1992-1995 war.
The conflict claimed about 100,000 lives and forced some two million people to flee their homes.
