Bosnian Serb ex-general Tolimir in genocide trial

A Bosnian Serb former general, Zdravko Tolimir, has gone on trial in The Hague accused of genocide and other crimes committed during the Bosnian war.

A prosecutor at the UN war crimes tribunal said Mr Tolimir had "assisted, supervised and authorised" killings of Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims).

Genocide is among the charges he faces for his alleged role in the massacre of up to 8,000 men and boys at Srebrenica.

He was a top aide to commander Ratko Mladic, who is still on the run.
