Mladic completes jail medical tests

Ratko Mladic has been transferred to a regular cell at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal's detention unit after completing medical tests.

A spokesman said the former Bosnian Serb army chief "is following the standard detention regime" at the jail in The Hague. That means being locked every night into a one-man cell, equipped with a computer – without internet access – and a television which airs broadcasts from the former Yugoslavia.

His Belgrade lawyer said after his arrest last month that he suffered two strokes during 16 years as a fugitive from justice.
