A British court has granted bail to former Bosnian Vice-President Ejup Ganic.

The 64—year—old was arrested on March 1 at London’s Heathrow airport on a Serbian warrant in connection with the 1992 death of Yugoslav army troops in Bosnia. Belgrade accuses Mr. Ganic of ordering an attack on retreating soldiers in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.

Bosnia argues the allegations are designed to minimize Serbia’s blame for the 1992—1995 war that tore the Balkans apart.

The dispute has strained relations between Bosnia and Serbia, which had improved since the war in Bosnia ended in a U.S. brokered peace agreement in 1995.

The bail was granted on Thursday.
