BELGRADE - Serbian nationalists attacked police in Belgrade on Sunday at a rally where about 10,000 protesters demanded President Boris Tadic and his government quit over the arrest of Bosnian Serb wartime general Ratko Mladic.

Mladic, indicted for genocide in the 43-month siege of Sarajevo and the massacre of 8,000 Muslims in Srebrenica during Bosnia's 1992-95 war, was found on Thursday in a village 100 km (60 miles) northeast of Belgrade after 16 years on the run.

Supporters of the ultra-nationalist Serbian Radical Party and of similar organizations were brought in by bus from across the country. Many came straight from Sunday soccer matches.
