Ratko 'Rat" Mladic, his photo above,wanted by UN prosecutors for war crimes during the Bosnian civil war, has been arrested in Serbia after a decade in hiding. Serbian President Boris Tadic confirmed the arrest of the former Bosnian Serb army chief at a news conference.
Gen "Rat" Mladic is accused of a key role in the massacre of at least 7,500 Muslim 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.
President Tadic said work was under way to extradite Gen Mladic to the international war crimes tribunal in The Hague. The detention, he said, had closed one chapter in Serbian history, bringing the country and the region closer to reconciliation.

It had also opened the doors to membership of the European Union, he added. Nato chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen hailed the arrest, saying it finally offered "a chance for justice to be done".
Assumed name..Gen Mladic was said by Serbian media to have been arrested in Vojvodina, a northern province of Serbia, in the early hours of Thursday morning. The "Rat" was reportedly using the assumed name Milorad Komodic and living the high life.
Gen"Rat" Mladic was indicted by the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague in 1995 for genocide over the killings that July at Srebrenica - the worst single atrocity in Europe since World War II - and other crimes.
It has long been suspected that Gen"Rat" Mladic has been living in Serbia, where many people still regard him as a hero and a defender of Serb rights during the 1992-1995 conflict.
Two years ago, video footage emerged of Mladic living freely in the country, enjoying himself at a ski resort and dancing at a wedding.
William Hague, the foreign secretary, said: “The arrest of Ratko Mladic is a historic moment for a region that was torn apart by the appalling wars of the 1990s. Ratko Mladic stands accused of terrible crimes committed in Bosnia-Herzegovina and it is right that he will now be brought to face international justice. Today our thoughts are with the relatives of those killed during the siege of Sarajevo and genocide in Srebrenica.
