A Croatian general charged with war crimes has been held in Spain, the UN's chief war crimes prosecutor has said.
Ante Gotovina - one of the most wanted men from the 1990s Balkan wars - was arrested on Wednesday night in the Canary Islands, said Carla Del Ponte.
Gen Gotovina is accused over the death of about 150 Serb civilians during a Croatian offensive in 1995.
Ms Del Ponte said she hoped efforts would now be stepped up to arrest the tribunal's two most wanted men.
