A man has been arrested in Sweden on suspicion of war crimes during the 1992-95 Bosnian war, Swedish police have confirmed.
The man who was in his mid-40s, was believed to have been in Sweden since 2009 but is not a Swedish citizen. The man, believed to be a citizen of Bosnia-Herzegovina, had been hiding in the small town of Ostersund in the central Swedish province of Jamtland.
Bosnian authorities had issued an international arrest warrant for him and they have been notified of the arrest.
There have been consistent rumours that there are many alleged war criminals hiding all over the EU. In 2008, Sweden set up a special police unit tasked with tracking and investigating alleged war criminals.
