Bosnia genocide suspect Ratko Mladic arrested

Ratko Mladic, the former Bosnian Serb army commander wanted for crimes against humanity, was arrested Thursday in Serbia. CNN’s senior international correspondent Nic Robertson, who covered the Balkans war for CNN in the 90s and interviewed Mladic on numerous occasions, is in Lazarevo, Serbia.

Robertson recalls his meetings with Mladic on CNNI’s ‘International Desk’:

In addition to Robertson’s reporting, CNN’s Atika Shubert (in London), Dan Rivers (in Deauville, France for G8), Ivan Watson (Belgrade), Richard Roth (at UN in NY), Phil Black (The Hague, Netherlands) and Frederik Pleitgen (Sarajevo) are contributing to the network’s coverage of this arrest.
