Serbia police arrested 9 suspected Kosovo war criminals
Garrett Eisenhour at 12:00 AM ET

On March 13, 2010, Serbia's Office of the War Crimes Prosecutor announced the arrest of nine suspects for war crimes committed during the 1998-1999 Kosovo War. The nine suspects were members of the Serbian paramilitary group Sakali and were accused of the systematic murders of 41 ethnic Albanians in connection to the death of 200 civilians in the village of Cuska. The previous year, Amnesty International (AI) marked the 10-year anniversary of the Kosovo conflict and emphasized that many of the war crimes which took place still stand unpunished. Most recently the Humanitarian Law Center (HLC), a Serbian human rights group, alleged that Serbian General Ljubisa Dikovic committed war crimes in the Kosovo War based upon evidence presented at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) trial of former Serbian president Milan Milutinovic.
