Serbian Groups to Protest Mladic Arrest

Police in Serbia are on high alert over planned demonstrations by ultra-nationalists protesting the arrest of ex-Bosnian Serb army chief Ratko Mladic. Mladic was arrested last week on charges that he engineered the deaths of about 7,500 Bosnian Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica and other crimes in 1995.

The Serbian Radical Party, which is sponsoring the demonstrations, say they will be peaceful.
