War crimes suspect Goran Hadzic has been extradited to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) court in The Hague, Netherlands.

The wartime leader of Croatia's Serbs arrived at Rotterdam airport from Belgrade after Snezana Malovic, the Serbian justice minister, signed the extradition orders early on Friday.

Serbian security officials arrested Hadzic, who was sought for war crimes in Croatia between 1991 and 1995, on Wednesday on a forest road in the Fruska Gora national park region about 65km north of Belgrade.
