    Bosnia: Muslims step up demands to abolish Serb entity

    Sarajevo/Belgrade, 1 August(AKI) - Bosnian Muslims on Friday welcomed the indictment of Radovan Karadzic before the Hague-based United Nations war crimes tribunal and stepped up demands for the abolition of his project, the separate Serb entity, Republika Srpska (RS).

    The territory was created in the Dayton Peace Accord that ended the war in 1995 inside what is now Bosnia-Herzegovina.

    What effect does an agreement signed in 1995 (Clinton regime) have on the Hague-based World Court trying Karadzic for genocide? Probably nothing unless there are some documents that we gave him amnesty to come to this country. I am strongly beginning to feel the US should start keeping its fingers and military out of places with despots and dictators and let them solve their own problems.
