BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia's police chief says security has been tightened throughout the country ahead of the protest planned by ultranationalists over the arrest of Ratko Mladic.

Ivica Dacic says the rally scheduled for Sunday in Belgrade will closely be watched by the police.

Dacic said on Saturday that: "Security has been increased, but the situation in Serbia is stable."

Europe's most-wanted fugitive, Mladic was arrested Thursday after 16 years on the run from genocide charges issued against him by a U.N. war crimes court for his part in the killing of some 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica and other atrocities committed by his troops during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
