NATO Raids Business Of Karadzic's Son-In-Law

13 October 2005 -- NATO troops hunting for Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic today staged a raid on a business owned by his son-in-law.

A NATO spokesman said the alliance has "a strong suspicion" that the electronics business of Branislav Jovicevic in the town of Pale is part of the support network for Karadzic.

NATO said there were no casualties during the operation.

Over the last two years, NATO peacekeepers have conducted a number of operations targeting Karadzic, without result. The UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague indicted Karadzic and his wartime commander Ratko Mladic for genocide over the 1995 Srebrenica massacre and the 1992-95 siege of Sarajevo.
