Former Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic intended to "ethnically cleanse" Bosnia, the opening day of his war crimes trial has heard.

Gen Mladic faces 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including genocide, in connection with the brutal 1992-95 Bosnian war.

Satko Mujacic was just 20 when he was detained and held in the Omarska camp.

In an interview with the BBC he described the horrors of the conflict and said: "Death was all around. They were killing people... sometimes in large groups."
