Summary/Abstract: The terrible suffering of Croats took place in the village of Trusina near Konjic on April 16, 1993. The soldiers of the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ARBIH) attacked the village and killed 22 Croats. They were mostly civilians, including several women, and members of the HVO who surrendered because their families were captured by members of the ARBIH. The survivors, about 150 of them, were captured in a house, where they spent the night and were exchanged after two days. For the war crime in Trusina, Edin Džeko was sentenced to 13 years in prison and Rasema Handanović to five and a half years in prison.
