Vlastimir Djordjevic, Serbian war criminal, arrested

BBC: Montenegro has arrested a former Serbian security chief accused by the UN war crimes tribunal of ordering the killing of Kosovo Albanians. Vlastimir Djordjevic is due to be transferred to The Hague where he is one of four Serbian generals accused of crimes in the breakaway province.

The arrest may mark another step by Serbia towards better ties with the EU.

Earlier in June, Belgrade helped arrest Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Zdravko Tolimir, who is now at The Hague.
