U.S. troops nab Bosnian
Serb wante for crimes
The Washington Post
PARIS - U.S. troops yesterday
arrested a Bosnian Serb general who
allegedly played a key role in the dead-
liest massacre of Muslim civilians of the
Bosnian war and dispatched him to the
Netherlands to stand trial for genocide.
Gen. Radislav Krstic is the highest-
ranking war crimes suspect to be taken
into custody at The Hague, scat of the
U.N. tribunal prosecuting war crimes and
genocide in the bitter 1991-95 conflicts
that pitted Serbs, Croats and Muslims
against one another in breakaway
republics of a disintegrating Yugoslavia.
In its indictment, the tribunal charges
that Krstic was responsible for geno-
cide during the latter half of 1995 when
the Bosnian Serb army's Drina corps,
under his command, overran the
Muslim enclave of Srebrenica - which
had been declared a U.N. "safe area."
The Dutch troops charged with the
town's security were unable or - as
critics in the Netherlands and elsewhere
have said - unwilling to stop the
Bosnian Serb rampage. It is estimated
that as many as 8,000 Muslim civilians
were driven from Srebrenica into the
mountains, fleeing toward the town of
Tuzla. Along the way, the indictment
charges, they were ambushed and either
killed by Serb troops or rounded up for
Until his capture by American units
of the NATO-led Stabilization Force in
northeastern Bosnia, Krstic's indict-
ment by the tribunal had been a closely
guarded secret, one of an unknown
number of arrest warrants kept under
seal to enhance the prospect of appre-
hension. Krstic's scaled indictment was
barely a month old.
The chief prosecutor in The Hague,
Louise Arbour, yesterday described
Krstic's arrest as "very significant for
the continuing work of the tribunal,"
which has been attacked for prosecut-
ing suspects much further down the
chain of command.
Nearly a score of indictments of low-
ranking officers or soldiers have been
dropped in the last year to refocus the
cash-strapped, slow-moving tribunal's
work on more significant wartime deci-
sion makers such as Krstic, who served
just under the Bosnian Serb military
chief, Ratko Mladic.
In a statement yesterday, NATO
Secretary General Javier Solana warned
the 29 publicly indicted suspects still at
large "to surrender immediately" to the
tribunal. "They, too, will be brought to
justice' Solana said.
The two most-wanted Bosnian Serbs
are Mladic and former political leader
Radovan Karadzic. Their whereabouts
are no secret to NATO forces who are
monitoring the peace in Bosnia and
who have multiple mandates to arrest
all suspects wanted in The Hague.
In addition to genocide charges,
Krstic faces five counts, including com-
plicity to commit genocide, extermina-
tion, murder and persecution.

JERUSALEM - Middle East peacemaking descend-
ed into a new round of bloodshed and mutual accusations
yesterday as an Israeli soldier was ambushed and beaten
by Palestinian protesters in the West Bank and an Arab
man was stabbed to death in Jerusalem, apparently by a
The escalating tensions came less than two weeks
before President Clinton is due to arrive in the area for a
visit intended to bolster a fragile peace deal he helped
broker in October.
But peace seemed an increasingly distant hope yester-
day as Israeli and Palestinian leaders accused each other
of violating the new accord and creating an acrimonious
political climate that led to the day's violence.
Late yesterday', Israel announced it is suspending fur-
ther troop withdrawals from the West Bank until the
Palestinian Authority accedes to several conditions,
including publicly abandoning its plans to declare an
independent state in May and accepting Israel's terms for
the release of Palestinian prisoners.
The Palestinians quickly rejected the conditions. "This
is unfortunate and completely unacceptable," said chief
Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat. "We will not accept
any additions" to the agreement signed in Washington on
Oct. 23, he said.
Nonetheless, a senior adviser to Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will not proceed with the
next scheduled troop withdrawal without "clarifications"
that he said Netanyahu's "security" Cabinet now requires.
The agreement stipulates that the next pullback, from an
additional five percent of West Bank land, is scheduled to
take place during the week of Clinton's three-day visit,
which begins Dec. 12.
"There will be no more withdrawals until the
Palestinian Authority lives up to its obligations," said the
aide, David Bar-Illan.
It was not clear whether the latest discord could threat-
en the timing of Clinton's journey to the region, but Israeli
officials said they had not been notified of any change.
Yesterday's violence began with the predawn stabbing
of Osama Musa Natshe, a few hundred yards from his
home in a mixed Arab-Jewish neighborhood of
Jerusalem. Police said they believe that Natshe, a
Jerusalem street cleaner who was walking to work, may
have been killed by a Jewish extremist suspected of car-
rying out at least seven stabbing attacks against Arabs in
the last year. One other man has died in the assaults.
Police spokesperson Shmulik Ben-Ruby said evidence
found at the scene appeared to link Natshe's death to the
earlier attacks, which were carried out in or near the ultra-
Orthodox Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea Shearim.
Both Netanyahu and Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert
condemned the killing.
Faisal Husseini, the top Palestinian official in
Jerusalem, accused Israel of creating an atmosphere of
incitement by issuing broad condemnations of
Palestinians after anti-Israeli attacks by Islamic militants.
"This allows people like this extremist to go and - as he
sees it - seek revenge," Husseini said.
