Karadzic trial resumes with first witness

The genocide trial of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic resumed Tuesday at The Hague after a six-week break, with the first witness taking the stand.

Ahmed Zulic testified that he saw Serb forces shelling the mostly Muslim village of Mahala, Bosnia, in May 1992, and that he was one of the few survivors of the Manjaca detention camp.

Karadzic cross-examined the witness later in the session, disputing details of his testimony, both large and small.

Karadzic, who is representing himself, faces 11 counts of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. He has denied the charges.
