THE HAGUE (AFP) - Former Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic was given two days Wednesday to prepare for his first appearance before UN judges on genocide and war crimes charges after spending the last 16 years on the run. For long Europe's most wanted man, Mladic, 69, is to appear Friday before a three-judge bench at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague to plead to 11 counts. After spending his first night behind bars in a UN detention centre housed in a Dutch jail, the man accused of masterminding Europe's worst massacre since World War II was on Wednesday informed of the date of his initial hearing.
