Karadzic will fight extradition
A lawyer acting for the former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic has said he will fight moves to extradite him to the UN war crimes court at The Hague.
Mr Karadzic is wanted on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity.
He was arrested in Serbia on Monday, and has three days in which to appeal against his transfer to The Hague.
The Serbian Foreign Minister, Vuk Jeremic, said the arrest of Mr Karadzic showed his country was firmly committed to European Union membership.
The arrest of Mr Karadzic and other indicted war criminals is one of the main conditions of Serbian progress towards joining the EU.
This was something entirely expected.
