Ratko Mladic: Is he fit enough to face extradition?

Doctors in Belgrade are to decide whether Ratko Mladic is fit to resume attending a hearing aimed at extraditing him to the war crimes tribunal in The Hague.

Proceedings were halted on Thursday when the 69-year-old former Bosnian Serb army chief's lawyer said he was in a "poor physical state".

Gen Mladic - who was arrested following 16 years on the run - faces genocide charges over the 1992-95 Bosnian war.

Mark Lowen reports from Belgrade.
