The Bruška massacre took place on 21 December 1991 in Bruška, a small village near the Croatian town of Benkovac when Serbian paramilitaries executed 10 civilians in the hamlet of Marinovići. Nine were members of the Marinović family and one was a Serb neighbor. They were led out of the house after playing cards and shot on the spot by members of a paramilitary group called "Knindže".[1]

Dragan Vasiljković was the commander of this paramilitary group and has been indicted for this crime by the Croatian Ministry of Justice. Vasiljković was arrested in Australia in 2006 and extradited to Croatia in 2015.[2]
