Karadzic was one of the world's most wanted war crimes fugitives. He is a former Bosnian Serb president and a masterminded man of the ethnic cleansing .

More than 8000 Muslims were killed during the 1992-95 Bosnian war. But the latest research says about 100,000 people were killed in this war. Karadzic was arrested on early Tuesday morning in a sweep by Serbian security forces.


After Karadzic, Myanmar military leader Than Shwe should be considered and included in the list of world’s most wanted because he masterminded to kill the Buddhist monks and people during September uprising , 2007. He can also be accused of masterminding "ethnic cleansing" killings of Sham , Kayin and its own citizens. The Army and Senior General Than Shwe had committed similar crimes of killing NLD members and students on many occasions. The major massacre is in Depe Yin town , 30th May 2003, hundreds of NLD members led by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, were killed. The intention of Depe Yin massacre was to assassinate Daw Aung San Kyi, but she fortunately released with the help of people and pro-democracy members.


Recently the Nargis cyclone hit many parts of Myanmar, with more than 138,000 people killed and more than 2 million people helpless, homeless and hopeless. Nargis killed less, but Myanmar military government killed more with the failures to rescue, food supplies and medical supplies. All the cruelties of life in Myanmar are masterminded by Senior General Than Shwe.
