THE HAGUE - Former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic, extradited to the Netherlands from Serbia after 16 years on the run, is likely to face genocide charges at the UN war crimes tribunal within days.

Serge Brammertz, prosecutor for the tribunal, said in an interview with Austrian radio ORF on Wednesday everything possible would be done to avoid a lengthy trial. Several war crimes trials in The Hague have dragged on for years.
