Kidnapped foster children found in Bosnia

Bosnian police have found two Dutch children who were kidnapped in the Netherlands last year and arrested their former foster parents.

The children, who were not identified, were found in a house near the northwestern town of Banja Luka, local police told news agency AFP.
They are now being looked after by Dutch embassy officials in Sarajevo. The Dutch couple, who lost custody of the children in the Netherlands in October, will be extradited, the spokeswoman said.
The woman is thought to hold both Dutch and Bosnian citizenship.
