Radovan Karadzic captured

Some unequivocally good news (via Drink Soaked Trots) - Serbia captures fugitive Karadzic. He has been indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia for war crimes and genocide over the 1995 massacre at Srebrenica, in which at least 7,500 Muslim men and boys were killed. He was also charged over the shelling of Sarajevo and the use of UN peacekeepers as human shields. See this BBC story for more details on the charges. Ratko Mladic, who was chief of the Bosnian Serb army, has still not been captured - may it happen soon!
