There were clashes outside the Turkish embassy, and journalists were also attacked and their equipment damaged. Senior members of the ultranationalist Radical Party also 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.
