Police in Serbia and Bosnia have arrested 15 people over a 1993 wartime massacre that traumatised the Balkans and came to symbolise a culture of impunity that still shields notorious death squads and their masters.

Prosecutors from Serbia and Bosnia say they have jointly cracked the case of the 1993 Strpci massacre, in which 19 men were snatched off a train.

Officers carried out a pre-dawn sweep today that netted 15 suspects, including the brother of a feared warlord who is already in jail, ex-militia members and a former Bosnian Serb general.

The question now is whether the suspects will point to the men above them who ordered the killings, investigators say.
