(Newser) – Serbian forces arrested Radovan Karadzic today after hunting the war crimes fugitive for 12 years, the AP reports. The former Bosnian Serb president, collared with other suspected war criminals, will likely be sent to the UN war crimes court in the Hague. The tribunal has indicted him twice, once for approving the murder of civilians in Sarajevo and later for organizing the genocide of 8,000 Muslim men in Bosnia.
