AMSTERDAM - The Yugoslavia war crimes tribunal on Wednesday ordered Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic, who faces genocide and war crimes charges, to undergo a full medical examination to show whether he is well enough to stand trial.

Prosecutors fear that Mladic, who is 69 and has frequently complained of ill health, could die without facing justice, as happened with former Yugoslav strongman Slobodan Milosevic, who died before he could be sentenced.

Mladic, who was arrested in Serbia in May after 16 years on the run, is accused of genocide for his role in the siege of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo and for orchestrating the killing of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in 1995, in Europe's worst massacre since World War Two.
