His chair was empty, his headphones lay idle on the desk. In Courtroom One at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal, outraged survivors of Bosnia's bloody war gasped in disbelief as judges adjourned the opening day of Radovan Karadzic's trial after just 15 minutes. The former Bosnian Serb leader boycotted his war crimes trial on Monday, claiming he did not have enough time to prepare his defense - even though he was indicted in 1995 and had known he would be tried since being captured in Belgrade over 15 months ago.

Judges adjourned Monday's hearing but declared that the trial would begin Tuesday "with or without" Karadzic.
