Croatian war crimes suspect arrested in Argentina

The authorities in Argentina have arrested a Croatian man, Dinko Sakic, who has admitted being a concentration camp commander during the Second World War.

The Croatian authorities have requested the extradition of Mr Sakic, who is seventy-six, on suspicion of committing crimes against humanity.

Last month he told Argentine television he was a commander at the Jasenovac camp in Croatia, where tens of thousands of people died, most of them Serbs, but also Jews, gypsies and anti-fascists.

Mr Sakic, who has lived in Argentina for more than fifty years, says he did not commit any crime..
