Radovan Karadzic Arrested, Now For Omar al-Bashir

by | 22nd, July 2008

RADOVAN Karadzic, the poetic Bosnian Serb leader, has been arrested in Serbia. He will answer charges of war crimes at the Hague Tribunal.

The UN says Mr Karadzic’s forces killed at least 7,500 Muslim men and boys from Srebrenica in July 1995 as part of a campaign to “terrorise and demoralise the Bosnian Muslim and Bosnian Croat population”.

He was also charged over the shelling of Sarajevo, and the use of 284 UN peacekeepers as human shields in May and June 1995.

After the Dayton accord that ended the Bosnian war, the former nationalist president went into hiding.

Now for Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir.
