Ratko Mladic arrested

Ratko Mladic, wanted for the Srebrenica massacre and other war crimes in Bosnia, has been arrested in Serbia after a decade in hiding.

Serbian President Boris Tadic confirmed the arrest after earlier reports that Gen Mladic had been taken into custody.

Gen Mladic is accused of a key role in the massacre of at least 7,500 men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995.

He was the most prominent Bosnian war crimes suspect at large since the arrest of Radovan Karadzic in 2008.
