Yugoslavia tribunal moves to speed up Mladic trial

AMSTERDAM - The Yugoslavia war crimes tribunal on Friday accepted a prosecutor's request to speed up the trial of ailing Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic, who faces genocide and war crimes charges.
Mladic, 69, has suffered health problems, and prosecutors fear he could die without facing justice as happened with former Yugoslav strongman Slobodan Milosevic, who died in 2006 before he could be sentenced.
The tribunal said on Friday it had granted a prosecutor's request to reduce the number of crimes in Mladic's indictment to 106 from 196.
