War crimes suspect Mladic appears in Hague court

THE HAGUE - Former Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic appeared on Friday before the Yugoslav war crimes court to hear charges of genocide over the 1992-95 Bosnian war.
Extradited to the Netherlands from Serbia on Tuesday following his arrest last week, Mladic appeared in court wearing what looked like a military forage cap, before later removing it to take his seat.
"I am General Mladic," Mladic said in a calm voice.
He will be asked to enter a plea at Friday's hearing.
