Serb police arrest man suspected to be Mladic

BELGRADE (Reuters) - Serbian police have arrested a man suspected to be the wanted war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic, an Interior Ministry official said on Thursday.

"He has some physical features of Mladic. We are analysing his DNA now," the official said on condition of anonymity. The man was arrested in Serbia on an anonymous tip, he said.

Serbia must arrest Mladic, sought by the U.N. war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) for genocide during the 1992-1995 Bosnian war, if it wants to join the European Union.
