Report: Bosnian Serb genocide detainee Mladic in hospital

October 11, 2011 12:16

BELGRADE - Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic, awaiting trial in The Hague, has been admitted to hospital suffering from pneumonia, his lawyer said on Tuesday.

The Yugoslav war crimes tribunal, where the former general faces genocide and war crimes charges over the 1992-1995 Bosnia war, confirmed Mladic was receiving medical treatment but said it could not reveal what for.

Mladic, 69, has frequently complained of ill health, most recently last week, since his arrest and extradition from Serbia in May.

Mladic's Belgrade lawyer, Milos Saljic, told Reuters the tribunal had informed him on Monday that Mladic had been transferred to hospital, "apparently because of pneumonia."

He said he had no further details.
