Prosecutors begin Karadzic trial

Former Bosnian Serb leader accused of ethnic cleansing campaign against Muslims.

    Prosecutors in the trial of the former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic say he led a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Muslims during the 1992-95 conflict in Bosnia.

    The war crimes trial at The Hague began on Tuesday without Karadzic in court, after he made good on his promise to boycott it.

    Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports from The Hague.
