A citizen of Bosnia-Herzegovina suspected of committing war crimes during the Bosnian War has been arrested in Munich.
The 50-year-old man, whose name was not given, was arrested at the airport in Munich on the basis of a request from Interpol in Sarajevo on December 29. He is accused of committing crimes against humanity.
The suspect was reportedly a policeman in Bosnia in the early 1990s when he is accused of torture and killings as part of the 1992-95 Bosnian War.
The man is reported to have been living in the southern German state of Bavaria.
He will be held in Munich until a decision on his extradition to Sarajevo is made by German officials.
