NATO To Hold Karadzic's Son Indefinitely

Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic (file photo) 8 July 2005 (RFE/RL) -- NATO says it will keep the son of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic in custody until he reveals information that may lead to the capture of his father.

NATO spokesman in Sarajevo Derek Chappell told the dpa news agency that Aleksandar Karadzic will be kept in detention as long as it takes to get information NATO believes he has.

NATO military units picked Karadzic up Thursday at his home in Pale, near Sarajevo.

The UN war crimes tribunal in the Hague has indicted the elder Karadzic on charges of genocide and war crimes.

There is no information on what charges, if any, have been made against his son.
