Police hold Canadian accused of war crimes in Croatia in Michigan jail

A Canadian accused of Croatian war crimes against civilians is to be held without bond in a Michigan jail pending a hearing next month.

Goran Pavic, 42, was arrested Wednesday after crossing the Ambassador Bridge into Detroit. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection service said the trucker's name was on an Interpol list of Serbs wanted for war crimes by the Croatian government.

The U.S. government wants to extradite Pavic to face charges. But his attorney questions whether a valid extradition treaty is in effect and whether alleged war crimes are subject to that treaty.

A U.S. Magistrate judge set a Dec. 4 hearing on the issue.
