[May 26, 2011]  BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) -- Serbian President Boris Tadic says Europe's most wanted war crimes fugitive Ratko Mladic has been arrested.

He said on Thursday: "On behalf of the Republic of Serbia we announce that Ratko Mladic has been arrested."

Mladic has been on the run since 1995, when he was indicted by the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, for genocide in the slaughter of some 8,000 Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica and other crimes committed by his troops during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
