Former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic was back in court today for his genocide trial at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal after recovering from a health scare that saw him rushed to hospital last week.
The 70-year-old former general rose slowly from his chair in the courtroom as the judges entered and then polished a pair of reading glasses as his lawyer, Branko Lukic, resumed the cross-examination of a witness which was interrupted last Thursday when Mladic complained of feeling ill.
Neither Mr Lukic nor Presiding Judge Alphons Orie has said anything about Mladic's health.
The tribunal released a statement on Friday saying that tests carried out at a Hague hospital showed Mladic was fit to stand trial.
He faces 11 charges alleging he masterminded Serb atrocities throughout the Bosnian war. Mladic denies wrongdoing.
