DEAUVILLE, France - US President Barack Obama congratulated the Serbian government on Thursday for arresting Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic and said he would now face justice.

"Today is an important day for the families of Mladic's many victims, for Serbia, for Bosnia, for the United States, and for international justice," Obama said in a statement.

"While we will never be able to bring back those who were murdered, Mladic will now have to answer to his victims, and the world, in a court of law."
