British spies trapped KaradzicAugust 7th, 2008 - 3:11 pm ICT by ANI
London, Aug.7 (ANI): British secret service agents played a key role in capturing fugitive Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, it was revealed yesterday.
According to The Sun, the agents tracked him down in Belgrade after being tipped off to his whereabouts by an informer.
Serb sources claimed a two-and-half million bounty placed on Karadzics head had been paid into a secret bank account in the British Virgin Islands by the US anti-terrorist network Reward For Justice.
And a Serb paper quoted a UK diplomatic source saying: On the day of Karadzics arrest, secret service officials told me their informer had been paid and the operation carried out.
Karadzic caught last month after 13 years on the run is in The Hague, Netherlands, facing war crimes charges. (ANI)
