Karadzic fails again to show up for genocide trial

Karadzic fails again to show up for genocide trial

Radovan Karadzic has boycotted his U.N. trial for a second day while prosecutors began outlining their genocide case against the former Bosnian Serb leader.
Presiding Judge O-Gon Kwon says he regrets Karadzic's decision not to attend Tuesday's hearing. He says the court will consider imposing a lawyer to represent Karadzic if he continues to boycott the proceedings.
Karadzic did not attend the trial's opening on Monday, claiming he needs more time to prepare his defense. He is defending himself against 11 charges.
Kwon says he warned Karadzic he must accept the consequences of refusing to be at his trial. Kwon says the three judges will decide how to proceed next week after the prosecution's opening statement.
