Al Jazeera English - Europe - Karadzic war crimes trial adjourned

Al Jazeera English - Europe - Karadzic war crimes trial adjourned: "The war crimes trial of former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic has been adjourned in The Hague, following his refusal to be present in court.

Karadzic boycotted the opening proceedings on Monday in protest at what he says is a 'rush to justice' by the UN-backed International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.

'In light of the absence of the accused and of counsel to represent him, the chamber will adjourn these proceedings today,' Judge O-Gon Kwon said within 15 minutes of the opening of the trial."
