Ratko Mladic, the former general whose Bosnian Serb forces terrorised Muslims during Bosnia-Herzegovina’s civil war from 1992-95, faced prosecutors in The Hague on Wednesday on charges of genocide.

Mr Mladic was commander-in-chief of the Bosnian Serb army that carried out the worst massacres and ethnic cleansing in Europe since the second world war. He is charged with more than 70 instances of genocide, as well as with torture and psychological and sexual abuse carried out in detention camps throughout the war.
