THE HAGUE, Mar 12 (Reuters) UN war crimes tribunal president Fausto Pocar said today a Dutch forensic team had not been able to determine the cause of death of Slobodan Milosevic yesterday which is why an autopsy was ordered.

Chief UN war crimes prosecutor Carla del Ponte told a news conference with Pocar that the death of the former Yugoslav president made the arrest of Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic and his military commander Ratko Mladic more urgent.

Both men are charged with genocide.
