Bosnians divided over Mladic's war crimes trial

Bosnians divided over Mladic's war crimes trial

Bosnians have been glued to live broadcasts of the genocide trial of 70-year-old Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladic for two days, but while some Bosnian Serbs applaud and cheer him, Bosniak and Croat victims say his arrogance has opened old wounds.
Muneveral Ljutovic, a survivor of the Sarajevo siege, says: "People can hardly watch."
The 82-year-old said she _ like so many other Sarajevo residents _ was infuriated by a wartime video prosecutors showed Wednesday in which Mladic says every time he passes Sarajevo, he kills someone.
In contrast, supporters sat in cafes in Mladic's former wartime stronghold of Pale, just 16 kilometers away, clapped each time he appeared on TV screens.
The judge suspended Mladic's trial indefinitely Thursday, after prosecutors failed to disclose thousands of documents to his team.
