THE arrest of former Bosnian Serb President Radovan Karadzic from a Belgrade suburb on Monday brought the 13-year-long hiding of the world's most-wanted war crimes fugitive to an end. Streets in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo were jammed with Muslims celebrating the arrest of Karadzic, who is likely to be extradited to the UN War Crimes Court in The Hague to face trial for the 1995 massacre of 8,000 Muslims in Srebrenica, that was Europe's worst slaughter since World War II. The United States and the European Union called the arrest an "illustration of the Serbian government's determination to honour its commitment to cooperate with International Criminal Tribunal". The world powers are right when they say that this architect of genocide deserves no sympathy. But then the same yardstick should apply to those occupying other sovereign countries and massacring their citizens.
