A new reward of one million euros has been offered for the capture of Bosnian Serb fugutive Ratko Mladic.

Serbian police have put up wanted posters around the country, amid increasing pressure to step up the hunt for the former army commander. Another fugitive Goran Hadzic is also featured. “They know where Mladic is,” said one Belgrade resident. “It’s not possible they’re still looking after all this time.” Another said: “Of course they won’t find him. I’m sure they won’t find him.” Serbia must arrest Mladic if it wants to get on the path to European Union membership. Mladic is charged with genocide by the UN war crimes tribunal in the Hague. He is accused of orchestrating the massacre in 1995 of 8,000 Muslims in Srebrenica and the armed siege of the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo. Hadzic is charged with war crimes allegedly committed during Croatia’s war for independence.
