Karadzic trial resumes in his absence

The trial of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic resumed at the Yugoslavia tribunal in the Hague on Tuesday, with Karadzic still refusing to attend.

Karadzic says he needs more time to prepare his defence against 11 charges including genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.
He was extradited to the war crimes tribunal in July last year after 13 years on the run.
In opening remarks, prosecutors described him as ‘supreme commander’ of a campaign of ethnic cleansing, the BBC reports.
