he U.N. war crimes tribunal at The Hague has suspended the trial of Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic, who was arrested in May 2011 after 16 years on the run, and is accused of genocide for his role in the siege of Bosnia's capital Sarajevo and for allegedly orchestrating the 1995 killing of 8,000 Muslims in Srebrenica. The court decided to suspend proceedings — which were set to resume June 25 — "because of an error in disclosing documents to the defense team." This is the second suspension of the trial since it opened in The Hague last month. Mladic, who has refused to enter a plea, is the last of the main figures in the Balkan wars of the 1990s to go on trial at the court.
