Mladic caught

Ratko Mladic, the fugitive army boss who authorised the mass murder of thousands has finally been caught.

Ratko Mladic, wanted for Europe’s worst massacre of civilians since World War II, has been arrested in Serbia.

Mladic, 69, was caught in a dawn arrest at a relative’s home in a tiny Serbian village after a 16 year hunt.

Foremost among the horrors he’s charged with is the July 1995 slaughter of up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica.

The area was supposed to be a safe zone guarded by Dutch peacekeepers.

Mladic had two pistols when he was arrested but offered no resistance, and he appeared shrunken, bald and pale, Serbian officials and media said.

16 years on the run is a long time. Glad he is finally caught and will now face justice.
