Dutch police and U.N. war crimes tribunal officials are preparing to receive former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic at a detention center near the court where he will stand trial for genocide.
Reporters have seen police helicopters and vans with tinted windows waiting at Rotterdam airport, the closest of several air fields where the executive jet carrying Karadzic could land. Officials at the jail near The Hague have cleared the courtyard to enable a helicopter to land, although it was unclear whether Karadzic will be brought there by helicopter or car. At the jail Karadzic will go through an identification process and a medical check.
Karadzic was flown earlier on Wednesday from Belgrade, where he had been detained since his arrest on July 21.
