The previous version implies that over 10,000 civilians were killed during the war. In fact, the Guardian article refers to 14,000 "rid" in Višegrad, which apparently account for both expelled and killed. The CCPR and IWPR reports report mass killings (apparently, several) in the ranges of 60-200 people; while the events were terrible, the sources should be cited meticiously for such sensitive events.

Visegrad sources[edit]

It isn't much (just a very brief paragraph), but the Mazowiecki reports does cite a survivor/witness of the Visegrad massacre in his reports on human rights violations in the former Yugoslavia.

The author of your Further Reading link Love Thy Neighbour is Peter Maass, not Peter Maas. There isn't a Wikipedia article on Peter Maass - you could link to his website at or to the page for Love Thy Neighbor - --Opbeith 21:01, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

If you think it's useful the ICTY's dismissal of Mitar Vasiljevic’s appeal against his conviction on charges relating to the "Drina River Incident" (the shooting of seven Bosniaks by the river) is at --Opbeith 21:28, 2 January 2007 (UTC) Final Report of the Commission of Experts Established Pursuant to Security Council Resolution 780 (1992)(United Nations Security Council S/1994/674 - 27 May 1994) - Annex VIII - part 1/10 Prison camps - 85.

How about a link to your Vilina Vlas stub as well? --Opbeith 21:12, 2 January 2007 (UTC)


HanzoHattori, in your edit of "Aftermath" you refer to "his sentence". As the wording of your edit stands I'd take this to refer to Lukic, who hasn't been tried yet, so there's no judgment at the ICTY site and obviously no sentence. You put a link to the meaning of "sentence" but then you use it to mean "judgment" instead.

Lukic's indictment charges him with approximately 150 deaths. If in fact you're referring to a judgment against one of the Vasiljevic brothers it would be useful to provide a link to the judgment at the ICTY website. I'm absolutely certain that any judgment there won't refer to Lukic being responsible for thousands of deaths since there isn't any judgment on the charges against Lukic yet and the charges only refer to about 150 deaths. What any judgment may say is that the "Milan Lukic group" were responsible for those thousands of deaths. You need to rephrase and substantiate your edit. --Opbeith 10:50, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

If anything, Lukic article on Wiki is confusing (I was reading this). Correct both as you want. --HanzoHattori 11:05, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Will take a look. --Opbeith 00:17, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

It was "Some of the crimes that he was sentenced for are listed below:" when I came upon it. --HanzoHattori 00:38, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

HanzoHattori, please excuse my error above - Lukic was charged along with Mitar Vasiljevic and his own brother cousin Sredoje Lukic. I have created a discussion page at Milan Lukic article where I have recorded my questioning of the facts as stated. I haven't had time to check if there is anything said in the Vasiljevic judgment that might be relevant. I've tried to amend the "Category" item referring to people convicted by the ICTY where Lukic is included but don't think that worked. If you want to you can follow up details of the Lukic indictment and the Vasiljevic judgment at There is apparently an effort being made to have the Lukic case referred to the Bosnian courts for hearing. --Opbeith 01:00, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.
