Virginia to Extradite Former Bosnia Prison Guard to Face War Crime Charges

A former Bosnian prison camp guard living in Virginia has been certified for extradition to his native country to face war-crimes charges pending approval by the State Department.

Almaz Nezirovic of Roanoke County is charged with torturing Serbians at the Rabic prison camp in 1992 during the civil war in the region of the former Yugoslavia now known as Bosnia-Herzegovina. Bosnian officials charge that Nezirovic beat, humiliated and traumatized unarmed civilian prisoners.
