Another reason not to trust alternative medicine...

So Karadzic was living in Belgrade before he was arrested (quelle surprise!), and selling alternative medicines. It turns out the key to good health is regular exercise, gingko biloba and the slaughter of innocents.

13 years on, Karadzic does indeed look different than he did during the war. But then, I always assumed that those responsible for hunting war criminals relied on more than just hair colour and distinguishing birth marks or scars.

Hopefully, the arrest of Ratko Mladic won't be far behind. I hear he's leading the Balkan campaign to investigate the relationship between vaccines and autism.

Karadzic Arrested

Radovan Karadzic has been arrested in Serbia.

The AP story points out that he used a number of "elaborate disguises" to evade capture, including disguising himself as a priest. How easy is it exactly to hide out in a monastery if you don't have the support of the clergy? Just asking...
