Bosnian Croat Miroslav Anic, suspected of war crimes committed during Bosnia’s 1992-95 war, surrendered to Bosnian authorities on Monday. Anic is suspected of war crimes committed in central Bosnia, including the 1993 massacre of 37 Bosniak civilians in the village of Stupni Do. He is believed to have been hiding in neighbouring Croatia.

Officials of the strongest Bosniak party, the Party of Democratic Action, SDA, will travel to Germany this week to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The SDA president Sulejman Tihic and the newly elected Bosniak member of Bosnia’s tripartite presidency, Bakir Izetbegovic, were invited to Germany by Merkel to discuss the political situation in their country, the party said.

Bosnia is likely to face shortages of maize this year, as the crop is expected to be 60 per cent down from last year's output levels, the head of a farmers’ association, Vladimir Usorac, said. He added that the fall harvest was delayed due to rain.
