THE HAGUE - Former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic called charges against him "obnoxious" and "monstrous words" as he declined to enter a plea at the Yugoslavia war crimes court on Friday.




Mladic was indicted over the 43-month siege of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo and the massacre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the town of Srebrenica, close to the border with Serbia, during the 1992-95 Bosnian war.




Mladic, who has 30 days to enter a plea, said he needed "more than a month" in court to study the charges against him, but Judge Alphons Orie scheduled a new hearing for July 4 for Mladic to enter a plea.


Making a basketball hand signal for "time out" (a pause), Mladic asked to speak in private with his lawyer and Orie called a 10-minute recess.
