Bosnian President Cancels Stockholm Trip

Sweden's early prison release of war criminal Biljana Plavsic has prompted the chairman of Bosnia's three-person Presidency to cancel an official trip here planned to begin next week.

Plavsic was released Tuesday from a Swedish prison after serving two-thirds of an 11-year jail term for crimes against humanity.

President Zeljko Komsic said that he will not travel to Stockholm because although Swedish law offers the possibility of early release, it was the government that voluntarily chose to use that possibility.
