Latest News from Bosnia and Herzegovina
The regime of Radovan Karadzic was not totalitarian in the sense that Nazism or Stalinism were; yet it was a regime that existed solely for the purpose of murder - the physical annihilation of non-Serbs, or more specifically, Bosnian Muslims.
Let me quote from Karadzic's court verdict a description of some of the events that took place in Rogatica in eastern Bosnia during the war:

Natalija Trivic, Republika Srpska's Minister of Education and Culture, confirmed on Friday that 19-year-old Slavko Mrsevic, who has autism, may attend graduate classes with his peers after he was initially barred from attending high school.
But their trial remains on hold due to Djuric's sickness.
Nedim Salaharevic, who saw his brother, Edin, being killed in Vlasenica, told BIRN that he had been waiting for justice for years.
"This is yet another blow to victims … Djuric and Kraljevic were rulers of life and death in Vlasenica. I saw it with my own eyes, I watched them kill my brother, Edin," he said.
