BELGRADE, Yugoslavia - When Bosnian Serb commander Gen. Ratko Mladic swept
triumphantly into Srebrenica last week, he not only wanted to sweep Srebrenica
clean of Muslims - he wanted Nasir Oric.
In Mladic's view, the powerfully built Muslim commander had made life too
difficult and too deadly for Serb communities nearby.
Even though the Serbs had Srebrenica surrounded, Oric was still mounting
commando raids by night against Serb targets.
