Belgrade - Several hundred Serb nationalists protesting the arrest of Bosnian war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic clashed for a third successive evening with police in downtown Belgrade Thursday, news reports said.
They threw bottles, rocks and fireworks, and burned the flags of political opponentns. Journalists were also attacked and their equipment damaged.
Senior members of the ultranationalist Radical Party again took part, the reports said. The Radicals were the only Serb party not to welcome Karadzic's arrest, which they compared to killing Serbia.
Karadzic, indicted on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity by the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague, was arrested Monday night in Belgrade after 12 years on the run.
