Bosnia's State Investigation and Protection Agency (SIPA) confirmed Thursday in Sarajevo it detained during the last two days two Bosnian Serbs suspected of war crimes in the village of Kalinovik, some 20 kilometres south-east of Sarajevo.

SIPA said it detained on Tuesday Nedjo Zeljaja, 60, and Djordjislav Askraba, 56, on Wednesday, both suspected of war crimes against the Bosnian Muslim population of Kalinovik in the early stages of the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Nedjo Zeljaja was wartime commander of the Bosnian Serb police in Kalinovik, while Askraba was warden of a detention facility in the village, through which more than 1,000 people passed and where more than 260 were killed.

The action was ordered by the Prosecutor's Office of Bosnia- Herzegovina.
