The world's most-wanted list has lost two of its most prominent members in the past month. U.S. Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden May 1 in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and officials today arrested the Bosnian Serb general, Ratko Mladic, who is suspected of massacring 8,000 Muslim men and boys, in Lazarevo, Serbia.

Here's a look at who's left on the list:

Terrorism

Ayman al-Zawahri is al Qaeda's No. 2 official and was indicted for his alleged role in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya that killed 224 people. The speculation is that he will be named the leader of al Qaeda in the wake of bin Laden's death.

Anwar al-Awlaki is a U.S.-born cleric and one of al Qaeda's most well-known, English-speaking radicals. He is believed to be hiding in Yemen and was targeted by a U.S. drone attack earlier this month. The missile strike failed to kill him.

Adam Yahiye Gadahn is from California and is one of al Qaeda's top propagandists. He has been indicted in California for treason.

Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso is one of the most senior al Qaeda leaders publicly linked to the failed 2009 Christmas Day attempt to bomb a U.S. air carrier. He is thought to be in Yemen and was indicted for his alleged role in the bombing of the USS Cole in 2000, which killed 17 sailors.

Jamel Ahmed Mohammed Ali-Badawi is the mastermind behind the al Qaeda attack on the USS Cole. He escaped from a Yemeni jail in 2006.

War Crimes

Omar al-Bashir is the president of Sudan and is wanted for crimes allegedly committed in Darfur. The International Criminal Court has issued a warrant for his arrest. He is charged with genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Ali Kushayb is a janjaweed militia leader in Sudan. He is wanted for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Joseph Kony is the leader of the rebel group Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda. The group is known for its brutal attacks against civilians.

Jean Bosco Ntaganda is a Congolese warlord who is wanted for war crimes that include an ethnic massacre and forcing children to fight.

Felicien Kabuga is accused of financing and inciting killing during the 1994 Rwandan genocide that took the lives of at least 500,000 people. He is charged with genocide and crimes against humanity.

World War II

Alois Brunner is an unpunished Nazi war crimes suspect who might still be alive. He is accused of helping deport tens of thousands of Jews across Europe. He was last seen in Syria in 2001.

Dr. Aribert Heim is a Nazi war criminal known as "Dr. Death." He is accused of administering lethal injections and conducting gruesome experiments. He is reported to have died in Cairo in 1992, but there are doubts about whether he is actually deceased.
