Ratko Mladic removed from war crimes court

Former Bosnian Serb commander Ratko Mladic has been removed from court in The Hague after he shouted at judges reading his trial verdict over war crimes.

His expulsion happened after the judge rejected a request by his lawyer to adjourn the session on health grounds.

Known as the "Butcher of Bosnia", Mladic faces 11 charges, including genocide and crimes against humanity, at the UN tribunal, over the 1990s Bosnian war.
