BOSNIAN WAR-CRIMES SUSPECT ARRESTED

NATO troops Sunday arrested a former Bosnian Serb police chief indicted by the international war-crimes court on charges of murder, rape and other crimes during the 1992-95 Bosnian war.

Stevan Todorovic was apprehended without incident in the northern Bosnian town of Bosanski Samac, a NATO statement said.

President Clinton confirmed that American and other, unspecified allied troops took part in the arrest. Clinton, who was in California on a fund-raising trip, said Todorovic was responsible "for some of the most heinous crimes that took place during the conflict in Bosnia."
