PALE, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) -- With repeated raids by NATO peacekeepers failing to catch most-wanted war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic, some Bosnians are getting frustrated -- and suspicious of the peacekeepers' intentions.
Karadzic, 57, the Bosnian Serbs' wartime president, has eluded authorities since 1995, when the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands indicted him on charges of war crimes and the genocide of Muslims during Bosnia's 1992-1995 war.
In February, black-masked NATO troops toting assault rifles descended on a remote eastern village, setting off explosives, lifting carpets and checking behind a church altar in a failed search for Karadzic.
Last week, peacekeepers raided an abandoned Karadzic family home in this small town near Sarajevo. They found evidence indicating Karadzic was involved in illegal smuggling.
