    Default Ratko Mladic hunt: Arrest reported in Serbia

    A man said to strongly resemble fugitive Bosnian war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic is undergoing identity tests after being arrested in Serbia.
    Respected Serbian radio station B92 said: "B92 has been able to verify that a man suspected to be Mladic is in custody."
    Gen Mladic is the most prominent Bosnian war crimes suspect who is still at large.
    Serbian President Boris Tadic is due to make a statement shortly.
    Good news indeed if it is him.

    Full story here.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    I don't mean to be cynical, but how much of this is a result of a hunt, or that Serbian authorities feel it politically expedient to surrender him at this time?

    They can carry on their efforts in joining the EU.

    To the Hague with you sir.
    Looks like Serbia decided EU membership was worth it after all.

    Bet he's glad it wasn't a team of US Navy Seals kicking the door in.

    On a serious note, it's good news if they have caught Mladic - the sooner he's in The Hague and on trial alongside his old pal Karadzic, the better.

    For those who've forgotten about him or have never heard of him, here's a little reminder:

    Whatever the motives of the Serbian authorities, hopefully they've got the right man!

    He was one of the most wanted PIFWCs so hopefully it is him.
