New commander takes over Bosnia NATO headquarters
SARAJEVO (AFP) Sep 01, 2005
US Brigadier General Luis Weber has taken charge of NATO headquarters in Sarajevo tasked with advising Bosnia on military reform and assisting the hunt for war crimes suspects, a statement said Thursday.
Weber took over from US Brigadier General Steven Schook.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) maintained a small contingent of troops in Bosnia after the European Union took over security tasks in the Balkan country from the NATO-led Stabilization Force (SFOR) in December 2004.
SFOR was deployed in Bosnia to provide security and oversee the military aspects of the peace deal that ended the country's 1992-95 war.All rights reserved. © 2005 Agence France-Presse.
