Kosovo's former prime minister Ramush Haradinaj was arrested by the French police on an arrest warrant by Serbia, Reuters reported.

Kosovo's government has criticised the move and is trying to resolve the issue.

Ramush Haradinaj is now an opposition leader.

Serbia considers Haradinaj a war criminal for leading a guerrila movement in its southern province of Kosovo.

Kosovo declared independence in 2008.
