SARAJEVO (Reuters) - A senior Bosnian judge has been arrested on suspicion of taking a bribe, the prosecutor's office said on Thursday, in the first case of corruption to involve a member of the judiciary in the Balkan country.

Appeals judge, Azra Miletic, was arrested late on Wednesday and two other people, whose sentences for organized crime and drug-dealing had been greatly reduced on appeal, were arrested on the same grounds. One was a former police officer.
