World’s ‘most wanted’ extradited

Published:Wednesday | July 30, 2008 | 11:25 AM

Former Bosnian Serb President Radovan Karadzic is to be transferred today from a detention facility in Belgrade, Serbia, to The Hague to answer war crimes charges.

He faces 11 charges, including genocide, crimes against humanity and violations of the law of war stemming from the 1992 to 1995 conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The one time psychiatrist and aspiring poet was arrested last week, after more than a decade as a fugitive.

Karadzic\'s extradition came hours after thousands of people rallied in his support, waving flags and chanting nationalist slogans, in Belgrade and decrying the prospect of his transfer to the International War Crimes Tribunal.
