One of the world’s most wanted fugitives, Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladic, was arrested today in Serbia. Evading capture for nearly 16 years, Mladic is accused of genocide and crimes against humanity, including the orchestration of the Srebrenica massacre in 1995 that killed nearly 8,000 men and boys. Mujko Erovic, owner and publisher of the local Bosnian newspaper, Bosnia United, offers his reaction. Also, more than 30,000 people went missing during the war in the former Yugoslavia. In 1996, the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) was established in Sarajevo to help locate and identify them. Two ICMP experts explain their organization’s success. And on Global Activism, we get an update from Operation Asha, which works to eradicate tuberculosis around the globe.
