Radovan Karadžić Arrested Near Belgrade

Radovan Karadžić, the Bosnian Serbe leader during the 1992-1995 war, was arrested on Monday by Serb authorities near Belgrade. He was indicted in mid-1995, by Prosecutor Richard Goldstone, and has been on the run since then. He should shortly be transferred to The Hague for trial before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. That leaves one more 'most wanted' suspect for the Tribunal still at large, General Ratko Mladić, who was in charge during the Srebrenica massacre of July 1995.
