EU peacekeepers today captured a war crimes suspect, Dragomir Abazovic, in Bosnia.

I guess he didn´t want to get caught. To bad his kid had to suffer too. There are still many war criminals from this war who is yet to be caught.

Now they say that his wife and kid was shooting at the EUFOR troops and that´s why they all got shot. Actually his wife fired the first shot according to reports. The EUFOR troops only returned fire. They also say that Dragomir Abazovic received his head injuries after he shot himself.

BBC: Court frees Bosnian Serb suspect

3 February 2006

A Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect whose wife died in a shootout with European Union peacekeepers has been released from custody on a legal technicality.

His wife died, his 11-year-old son was wounded and Mr Abazovic was injured after shooting himself in the head. But Bosnia's war crimes court says the arrest was based on an old warrant.

Eufor said Mr Abazovic's injury happened when he turned the gun on himself as his wife and son fired an assault rifle at troops surrounding the house.

Mr Abazovic's son, who was shot in the stomach by the troops, denied the peacekeepers' version of events.
