U.N. Prosecutor: Pressure Serbia, Bosnia on '90s war crimes

Breaking News

The chief U.N. war crimes prosecutor urged the Security Council on Friday to pressure Serbia and Bosnia to arrest fugitive leaders from the Bosnian war, saying it was clear after 11 years that neither country was willing to do so.

Successive Serbian and Bosnian governments have lacked the political will to arrest wartime political leader Radovan Karadzic and his military chief, Gen. Ratko Mladic, said Carla Del Ponte.

"My assessment remains that the Serbian government could easily arrest Ratko Mladic should the authorities want to do it," Del Ponte told the council. "It is simply a question of political will."
