Ratko Mladic is on trial at the International Tribunal in the Hague, facing charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity stemming from the 1992-95 Bosnian War.

He is accused of planning the Srebrenica massacre in which 8,000 Muslim men and boys were killed.

For the survivors, the trial brings back terrible memories of the days their sons, husbands and brothers were dragged away never to be seen again.

As Mladic's trial began, some women in the town spoke to Al Jazeera. Khadija Magardie reports.
