Swiss Extradite War Crimes Suspect

The state prosecutors said a woman wanted for war crimes she allegedly committed against Serb civilians during the Bosnian war has been extradited from Switzerland. 56-year-old Elfeta Veseli was handed over to authorities on Friday at Sarajevo’s airport, reported AP.

She is accused of a “particularly cruel” murder of a 12-year-old Serb boy near the northeastern town of Zvornik in 1992. Veseli left Bosnia after the war and settled in Switzerland where she was arrested in September. Her transfer to Bosnia for trial was delayed because she had been battling extradition.
