Bosnia: NATO-Led Troops Raid Karadzic's House

Pale, Bosnia-Herzegovina; 2 July 2002 (RFE/RL) -- NATO-led peacekeeping troops in Bosnia-Herzegovina early today raided the family home of fugitive Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic. The Bosnian Serb SRNA news agency reported that troops from the NATO-led Stabilization Force, SFOR, forced their way into Karadzic's house in Pale, near Sarajevo. The agency said the operation was conducted with the support of armored vehicles and helicopters.

SRNA quoted members of Karadzic's family as saying no one was arrested during the operation.

Karadzic was the wartime leader of the Bosnian Serbs. He has been indicted by the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague for genocide and crimes against humanity committed during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
