FRANKFURT - German police have arrested a man suspected of war crimes in Kosovo eight years ago, prosecutors said Wednesday.

The 38-year-old, identified only as X.G., was in charge of a prison camp where many people died, prosecutors in Frankfurt said.

He was also believed to be a leading figure in the Kosovo Liberation Army (UCK).

The United Nations Mission in Kosovo has asked for the suspect to be extradited.

He was detained by national police in the small town of Seeheim- Jugenheim, south of Frankfurt.
