Srebrenica defender indicted over Serbs’ killings

A Bosnian Muslim wartime commander who defended Srebrenica against separatist Serb forces was indicted on Thursday for war crimes over the alleged killing of three Serb prisoners of war, Bosnia’s state prosecutor’s office said. Swiss authorities arrested Naser Oric in June on a warrant from Serbia over the killings of Serbs near Srebrenica during Bosnia’s 1992-95 war. His detention caused an uproar among Bosnian Muslims, or Bosniaks, many of whom see him as a hero. He was later extradited to Bosnia, which insisted he should be tried in the country where the crimes allegedly took place.
