Fourth in a five-part series in which leaders in the bloodiest conflict in Europe since the Second World War explain the chain of events leading to the collapse of Yugoslavia.

New evidence shows that it was President Slobodan Milosevic of Serbia himself who ordered the ethnic cleansers into Bosnia. For the first time, Serb paramilitary leader Vojislav Seselj implicates Milosevic as the man directly behind the murders, rapes and mass deportations. Two weeks after the ethnic cleansing began, while returning from talks with European Community peace negotiator Lord Carrington, President Izetbegovic of Bosnia was kidnapped by the Yugoslav army. He and his captors tell the story of how he survived.
(An interview with Slobodan Milosevic can be seen at 2.30 am.)
