Latest update : 2011-06-01

War crimes suspect Ratko Mladic will make his first appearance before a war crimes tribunal in The Hague on Friday, following his extradition on numerous charges relating to the Srebrenica massacre.

AP - Judges at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal have scheduled Ratko Mladic's arraignment for Friday, following his extradition from Serbia to the U.N. court.

Dutch Judge Alphons Orie signed the order early Wednesday, after the former Bosnian Serb military chief spent his first night in an isolation cell.

At the hearing Friday morning, Mladic will be asked to enter pleas to 11 charges, including genocide, for allegedly masterminding Bosnian Serb atrocities throughout the 1992-95 Bosnian war.
