One of the most wanted men in the Balkans has been arrested after an international manhunt.

Darko Saric faces charges including trafficking 5.7 tonnes of cocaine from South America to Europe.

Saric earned his 'most wanted' status, when about three tonnes of cocaine, which he planned to smuggle on an ocean liner to Western Europe from Uruguay, was intercepted five years ago. 

He gave himself up to Serbian police after an operation involving the CIA in South America.
