Chief U.N. war crimes prosecutor for the former Yugoslavia, Carla Del Ponte, says she is optimistic that former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic
will be in custody by the end of the day Wednesday. Karadzic, who has been indicted for genocide for his part in the Bosnian war, has been on the run
for the past eight years.
For years, Karadzic was said to be at large somewhere in the Republika Srpska -- the Serb part of Bosnia-Hercegovina. There has been renewed pressure
on Bosnia to hand over Karadzic.
Aides to Del Ponte say there have been new pressures placed on Serb officials in Bosnia who were recently convinced to give fresh evidence on mass
graves for a report on the massacres in Srebrenica in July 1995.

Hmm, the Republika Srpska, i remember driving around there, it's in the Canadian area of responsibility. I wonder if the Canadians are involved with
this arrest...seems like it's more of a political thing though.
