BELGRADE - A convoy believed to be carrying Goran Hadzic, a wartime leader of Croatia's Serbs and a suspected war criminal, arrived at Belgrade airport on Friday, a Reuters eyewitness said.

It was not immediately clear whether the move marked Hadzic's extradition to the U.N. war crimes court in The Hague, Netherlands. Serb officials responsible for the extradition were not immediately available for comment.

Serbian security officials arrested Hadzic, who was sought for war crimes in Croatia between 1991 and 1995, on Wednesday on a forest road in the Fruska Gora national park region about 65 km (40 miles) north of Belgrade.
