Despite being one of the world's most wanted men, former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic remains a national hero to many Serbs.

Thousands turned out in Belgrade on Tuesday night to show their support for the war crimes suspect.

He has been in custody in the Serb capital since his capture last week. However, as his extradition took place, those loyal to him poured onto the city's streets to protest against the government decision to extradite him to the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague.

Inside story examines the charges against him, whether his trial is likely to cause a split within Serbia, and if any surprises may come out of it.
