NPR's Martha Raddatz reports that French officials are denying a story that a French officer tipped off the former leader of the Bosnian Serbs, Radovan Karadzic, about a NATO operation to arrest him. Today's Washington Post cited unnamed sources that the French officer met secretly to tell Karadzic about U.S. and allied military plans. The French government admits the officer had contact with Karadzic, but denied that he compromised attempts to arrest Karadzic for war crimes.
