Bosnian-Serb leader Karadzic states case at The Hague


Ex-Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic says he was seeking to defend Bosnian Serbs from "state-sponsored terrorism" during the 1992-95 civil conflict.

Mr Karadzic told his trial at The Hague he had tried to prevent war and had appeared on TV to appeal for peace.

He insists he is innocent of all 11 charges from the Bosnian war, including genocide and war crimes.

Peter Robinson is Mr Karadzic's legal adviser at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).

He told Nik Gowing the former Bosnian Serb leader is doing a good job of representing himself in court.

The Hub with Nik Gowing is broadcast Monday to Fridays at 1600, 1630 and 1700 GMT on the BBC World News channel. Find out more information about regional broadcast times here.
