Serb minister says Srebrenica video may lead to arrest of war criminal Mladic

[JURIST] Following up on a report Thursday in JURIST's Paper Chase, Serbian Minister for Human Rights Rasim Ljajic [profile] said Friday that Serbian TV's broadcast of a disturbing video [ICTY excerpts via JURIST's Monitor] of six Bosnian Muslim youths being slaughtered by Serb paramilitaries may change public opinion and lead to the arrest of the former commander of the Bosnian Serb Army, General Ratko Mladic [ICTY case backgrounder; indictment]. Mladic, indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia [official website] and long sought-after [JURIST report] by international agencies and Serb authorities, is believed to be hiding in a wartime bunker near Sarajevo or possibly with sympathizers in Montenegro. Reuters has more.
