UNITED NATIONS - Serbia met a key obligation to a UN war crimes tribunal by arresting Bosnian Serb commander Ratko Mladic but still needs to explain why it took so long, the court's chief prosecutor said on Monday.

The prosecutor, Serge Brammertz, told the UN Security Council there remained "troubling questions" about how Mladic, who led Serb forces in Bosnia's brutal 1992-95 ethnic war, managed to evade capture for 16 years.

Cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia is crucial to Serbia's prospects for joining the European Union.

Mladic, branded the "butcher of the Balkans" for his wartime role, was arrested in Serbia on May 26 and sent to The Hague, where he made his first appearance before the tribunal last Friday.
