BELGRADE, May 27 (ITAR-TASS) - Police detained 35 people who protested late on Thursday in Belgrade against the arrest of Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladic, 69, who is likely to be extradited to the U.N. tribunal in the Hague to face charges of genocide and war crimes during the 1992-1995 Bosnian war.
Police said "several groups of 20-30 people tried to organize unsanctioned meetings in downtown Belgrade, but timely police actions prevented possible incidents."
In Novi Sad the number of protesters was close to 500 and they attacked the local branch of the ruling party. Local television showed protesters throwing stones and breaking glass in some windows of the building.
Police dispersed the protesters and two of them remained lying on the ground. They were taken away by an ambulance.
A hundred of protesters then gathered in the central square of the city to chant support to Mladic.
