BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - A top Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect, indicted by the U.N. war crimes tribunal for some of the worst atrocities in the Bosnian war, was arrested Monday in Argentina, federal police said.

Milan Lukic was indicted by the tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, in 2000 for crimes against humanity. He has also been sentenced to 20 years in prison in Serbia for war crimes but has been on the run since the late 1990s.

Earlier, senior Serbian government officials confirmed the arrest but spoke on condition of anonymity.

Federal police said Lukic was picked up in a residential neighborhood of Buenos Aires on Monday, but a police official did not immediately disclose circumstances surrounding the arrest.

A federal police spokesman said Lukic was taken after his arrest to a police precinct station in Palermo, a downtown Buenos Aires district.

The federal officer, who also spoke on customary condition of not being named, had no further report.

Very good job ! Soon Mladic and Karadzic will also face justice. After them it´s the old UCK members, about 15 of them, that will face jail. Vive la justice !

Sorry to dissapoint you my friend but according to Hague themselves there will be no more arrestings from Kosova

Perhaps Kosova, the state should take it upon itself to start arresting war criminals. It could happen, there are precedents.

Sure, Israel's Mossad is still active in hunting down old Nazis. There should be no peace for these bastards at any corner of the world.

Enlighten us then, Chicago. I think, as one of one that nations that suffered a lot from chetniks in the last century, we should know.

Reply to Chicago Serb,
Chetniks are synonymous with criminals.Individuals & armed organizations terrorizing, raping, murduring,burning villages, displacing non-serb populations,torturing civilians,
all in the name of greater serbia
(velika serbija) and their expansionist plans.
Let's ask the Albanians, Bosnian Muslims, Croatians,Ethnic Germans from Vojvodina, Ethic Hungarians, and Muslims in the Sanjak Region in serbia to define chetnik.They will all give the same definition
chetnik=criminal.We all know what a chetnik is, because all of the nationalities listed above suffered under chetnik tyranny!
Thank God that the chetniks don't
fight well when they are facing armed men!

Ante,

Your people brought the World JASENOVAC where you even shocked the SS murderers with your bestiality.

Even the European Community is finding it hard to accept an ethnically cleansed Croatia.

The only reason you hate Chetnicks is that they saved thousands of Serb and Jewish lives.

Isn't it about time you begged for God's forgiveness for the crimes of your people.
