Bosnian Serb War Crimes Suspect Surrenders

A Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect wanted for shelling Sarajevo has been taken into custody and will be sent to the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague.

Chief Prosecutor Carla del Ponte announced Friday that Dragomir Milosevic had apparently surrendered in Serbia. Mr. Milosevic, who is no relation to former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic, was commander of a Bosnian-Serb corps wanted for attacks on the Bosnian capital.

Ms. del Ponte said she had few details on the suspect's surrender.

Two of the tribunal's top suspects - Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic - are still at large.
