THE UN envoy to Bosnia said she believed the former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic was likely to appear soon before the international war crimes tribunal in The Hague.

Elisabeth Rehn said that Mr Karadzic's position had become more precarious now that several former members of the Bosnian Serb regime accused by the tribunal of war crimes have either given themselves up or been arrested. The Hague tribunal has indicted Karadzic for crimes committed by his troops during the 43-month Bosnian war. Nato-led troops yesterday arrested Miroslav Kvocka, 41, and Mladen Radic, 45, who were indicted by the tribunal for crimes against prisoners at Omarska detention camp near Prijedor, north-western Bosnia, in 1992. - Reuters
