BELGRADE (AFP) — Serbia said its security forces had captured Radovan Karadzic, the mastermind of the genocidal Srebrenica massacre who had been on the run for nearly 13 years. Karadzic, 63 -- described as the \"Osama Bin Laden of Europe\" -- had been \"located and arrested tonight,\" said a statement Monday from the office of Serbian President Boris Tadic. \"Karadzic was brought to the investigative judge of the War Crimes Court in Belgrade, in accordance with the law on cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY),\" it added. The presidency and prosecutors refrained from disclosing any more details about the operation, but a war crimes official who requested anonymity said Karadzic appeared \"depressive\" and offered \"no resistance\" when arrested on Serbian territory.

You have to say that is fantastic news...... that Serbia is coming in from the cold and handing over its genocidal war criminals....... those few trips into Serbian held Bosnia during the war....... were amongst the most frightening and depressing of my entire life...... this was a prison camp where previously people had been filmed starving...... these Muslim and Croat prisoners were clearly terrified...... the whole place was just rife with fear........ they were living in a cow shed but knew they were lucky......... lucky to be alive ...... not massacred and shoved into a mass grave like so many thousands of others.
