Sick Ratko Mladic misses court appearance
Former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic skips court hearing because of ill health
By The Associated Press

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) ' Former Bosnian Serb military chief Gen. Ratko Mladic says he is too ill to attend a Yugoslav war crimes tribunal hearing at which he is scheduled to enter a plea to a fresh count of multiple killings.

The U.N. tribunal has released a form Mladic filled out in which he indicates he is too ill to go to court for Thursday afternoon's hearing.

The court has not released details of Mladic's illness. A separate form filled out by a nurse at the tribunal's detention unit says Mladic may "require an extended period of convalescence."

Mladic faces charges of genocide and crimes against humanity for allegedly masterminding Serb atrocities throughout the Bosnian War.

The 69-year-old has complained of ill health since his capture in Serbia earlier this year.
