BELGRADE, Serbia: Bosnia and Herzegovina has detained seven people suspected of war crimes against civilians during the 1992-95 Bosnian War, authorities announced on Friday.

More than 100,000 people were killed and about 2 million people were forced to migrate during the war, according to the International Crisis Group.–Anadolu
