Israel announced plan to extradite war crimes suspect to Bosnia
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On August 1, 2011, a Jerusalem District Court ruled that suspected Bosnian war criminal Aleksander Cvetkovic would be extradited to Bosnia. Cvetkovic would then stand trial for alleged war crimes committed during the Bosnian Civil War, including his participation in the 1995 Srebrenica Massascre. Cvetkovic had been held in jail in Israel since January 2011. Several cases have recently developed in relation to the Bosnian Civil War. Others involved facing trials include former police officer Bozidar Kuvelja, Milorad Momic, Veselin Vlahovic and Dragan Crnogorac.
