Judges suspend Karadzic genocide trial again

Judges suspend Karadzic genocide trial again

U.N. judges have ordered a six-week adjournment in Radovan Karadzic's genocide trial so the former Bosnian Serb president can sift through documents disclosed by prosecutors that could support his defense.
Judges said in a written decision Wednesday the adjournment is "in the interests of justice" and will run from March 21 to May 5. The trial continues as scheduled until the break.
Karadzic complained last month that prosecutors had dumped 32,000 pages of evidence and some 200 hours of video on him _ too much for him to review while the trial was going on.
Karadzic faces 11 war crimes charges, including two genocide counts, for allegedly masterminding Serb atrocities throughout the 1992-1995 Bosnian war. He insists he is innocent.
