WASHINGTON: The United States has offered a five million dollar bounty for information leading to the arrest or conviction of indicted war criminals including Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic. The reward, offered as part of the state department’s `Heroes’ programme, will apply to the arrest or conviction of anyone indicted by the international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia which sits in The Hague.

The `Heroes’ programme, which has been successful in achieving arrests in the cases of the East Africa embassy bombings and a shooting at the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency, also provides for the protection and possible relocation of anyone supplying information. Milosevic and four others, including Serbian President Milian Milutunovic have so far been indicted for war crimes alleged to have been committed in Kosovo.
