Serbian authorities say they have found a bag that could belong to war crimes suspect Radovan Karadzic.

The government team that arrested Karadzic last month says the bag contains a laptop computer, 55 disks, newspaper clips and two books.

A statement issued on Tuesday also says that DNA and other analyses are under way to confirm that the bag was Karadzic's.

It says that the bag was found around 1300GMT on Monday, in a Belgrade suburb.

Karadzic's lawyer has accused Serbian authorities of reporting a false arrest date and confiscating Karadzic's laptop. He says Karadzic stored material for his defense on the computer disks.

Karadzic faces a trial for genocide at a U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands.
