SARAJEVO - Bosnian police on Thursday arrested two Bosnian Serb former soldiers suspected of genocide over the killing of around 1,000 Muslims from the eastern town of Srebrenica, the site of Europe's worst atrocity since the World War Two.




Ostoja Stanisic, 60, and Marko Milosevic, 48, were detained near the eastern town of Zvornik on orders of the Bosnian war crimes prosecutor, the prosecutor's office said in a statement.




"The two are subject of an investigation. Stanisic, the former commander of the 6th battalion of the Bosnian Serb army Zvornik brigade and Milosevic, his deputy, are suspected of committing criminal acts of genocide," it said.




The men are suspected of committing crimes in the area near the Petkovci dam in the village of Djurici, where around 1,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys from Srebrenica were executed in July 1995, the office said.
