A Bosnian war crimes prosecutor has indicted six Bosnia Serbs for their alleged roles in killing dozens of Muslims during the wars that tore Yugoslavia apart in the 1990s.

The Sarajevo-based prosecutor said in statement December 2 that the six also attacked about 1,000 people in eastern Bosnia's Srebrenica area in 1992.

The six were officials in the Bosnian Serb headquarters in the village of Skelani, the statement said.

The whereabouts of the six were not immediately clear.

Srebrenica is the town where Bosnian Serb forces killed some 8,000 Muslim men and boys in 1995, in what a United Nations courts has declared to be genocide.

Many suspected war criminals remain at large and victims are still being found in mass graves more than 20 years after the end of the wars.
