UN: Serbia could learn from the hunt for Osama bin Laden

BELGRADE - The hunt for Osama bin Laden shows fugitives are sometimes easier to find than one would think, a UN prosecutor said on Wednesday, urging Serbia to try harder to locate and hand over war crimes suspects.

Visiting UN war crimes prosecutor Serge Brammertz said the bin Laden case showed fugitives were not always in especially obscure locations.

"It means that sometimes persons are hiding in a place where you are not thinking they are hiding and sometimes it is much easier than you think," said Brammertz, who is due to present a report on Serbia's progress to the United Nations next week.
