Mladic's charges cut to speed up trial

The war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia is reducing the number of charges against the former commander of Bosnian Serb forces, Gen Ratko Mladic, because of fears about his health.
The tribunal accepted the prosecutor's request to cut the number of crimes in the indictment from 196 to 106.
Judge Bakone Justice Moloto said the decision was made "in the interest of a fair and expeditious trial".
Gen Mladic was arrested in Serbia in May after 16 years on the run.
He is charged with genocide at Srebrenica, where 7,500 Muslim men and boys were killed in July 1995.
