Foreign Agents Helping Serbia Hunt for Mladic

Serbia's top official in charge of tracking down fugitive war crimes suspects says foreign intelligence agents have joined the hunt for Ratko Mladic.

Rasim Ljajic gave no details about the search for the wanted Bosnian Serb wartime military chief. But Ljajic said it is impossible for Mladic to escape from what he called the best foreign and domestic intelligence agents.

Ljajic said no one expects Mladic to voluntarily surrender.

The United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague has indicted Mladic for genocide for his alleged part in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre of about 8,000 Muslim males.

Mladic has been on the run for 14 years and is believed to be hiding in Serbia.
