Banja Luka, Dec 20 (Beta) - SFOR command for southeastern section confirmed that the members of international forces arrested yesterday morning General Stanislav Galic. Beta unofficially found out that it happened at around 7.45 a.m. near Zeleni bridge in Banja Luka. The eyewitnesses said that Galic was arrested in front of "Orhideja" restaurant in Skender Kulenovic Street.

According to the military source of Beta, which wanted to remain unnamed, three vehicles of SFOR intercepted a car in which was General Galic. The soldiers of international forces broke the windows on the car, and pulled the General out, hurting him. After that they took him away in unknown direction.
