His wife was killed and his 12-year-old son wounded in a shootout with EUFOR troops near the small town of Rogatica.


All three were taken to hospital in the city of Foca. Doctors said Abazovic's wife later died from blood loss.


A local court in Bosnia had indicted Abazovic for alleged war crimes committed in Rogatica during the Bosnian war.
