Serbia's Prime Minister asks security chiefs why Mladic still free

Government officials said the Cabinet meeting would launch a plan to arrest the wartime Bosnian Serb army commander who has been on the run since U.N. prosecutors indicted him in 1995 for war crimes, the AP reports.

The plan calls for closer cooperation with U.S., British and other Western intelligence agencies to capture the fugitive general, government officials said.

Belgrade's failure to locate the wartime Bosnian Serb commander led the European Union to suspend pre-membership talks with Serbia earlier this year, and EU officials have said negotiations can continue only after Mladic is arrested.

Mladic is wanted by the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, on genocide charges for allegedly orchestrating the 1995 massacre of 8,000 Muslims from Srebrenica and for a brutal three-year siege of Bosnia's capital Sarajevo during the 1992.
