Serbia's war crimes prosecutor's office said on Wednesday that it had requested the Belgrade war crimes court investigate 94-year-old World War II suspect Sandor Kepiro, who now lives in Hungary. Kepiro is suspected of participating in mass killings of Jews and Serbs in northern Serbia during the Nazi occupation. The prosecutor said civilians in the city of Novi Sad and elsewhere were "killed massively at their houses, yards, in the streets, playgrounds and the Orthodox cemetery." The prosecutor urged the court to seek Kepiro's extradition from Hungary.
