In St. Louis, Bosnians react to Karadzic trial

By Matt Sepic, St. Louis Public Radio


St. Louis – On Tuesday, the Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic is expected to finally appear at his war crimes trial in The Hague, a week after it started. Karadzic faces 11 charges, including genocide and crimes against humanity during the Bosnian War.

He has been boycotting the trial, saying that he hasn't had enough time to prepare, and tomorrow he's expected to simply argue that case once more.

Legal wrangling aside, Bosnian refugees living in the U.S. do not expect the trial to provide them either closure or justice. St. Louis Public Radio's Matt Sepic reports.
