Serbian President Tadic defends time taken to arrest Goran Hadzic

Serbian President Boris Tadic has confirmed the arrest of Goran Hadzic, the last remaining fugitive sought by the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague.

Mr Hadzic, 52, is wanted for atrocities committed in the 1991-1995 war in Croatia. He led Croatian Serb separatist forces.

At a news conference in Belgrade, Mr Tadic was asked why it had taken so long to apprehend him.
