Abuses by Bosnian Croat and Muslim Forces in Central and Southwestern Bosnia-Hercegovina

All-out war broke out between the Bosnian Muslims and Croats in early May 1993 in central and southwestern Bosnia-Hercegovina. Both Croatian and Muslim forces have been guilty of serious abuses — they have deliberately executed civilians and disarmed combatants, arbitrarily arrested individuals belonging to the opposite ethnic group, mistreated prisoners in detention, and forced the displacement of tens and possibly hundreds of thousands of persons.
