Serbian authorities have arrested Goran Hadzic, the last remaining fugitive war crimes suspect sought by the UN tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
Mr Hadzic, now 52, led Serb separatist forces during Croatia's 1991-1995 war.
Within hours of the arrest, a Serbian court approved his extradition to the Hague. He has been charged with the murder of hundreds of non-Serbs.
The arrest comes less than two months after Serbia caught former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic.
Serbian President Boris Tadic confirmed Mr Hadzic's arrest at a news conference.
He said the suspect had been detained early on Wednesday in the mountainous Fruska Gora region, north of Belgrade, near his family home.
