Mladic: The Srebrenica widow who lost whole family to ethnic cleansing

When Ratko Mladic is handed over to the International Criminal Court, one of the gravest charges he will face is masterminding the slaughter of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in 1995.

Tens of thousands of Bosnian Muslims had fled to the town to escape Serbian troops in the north-east of the country

It was supposedly part of a UN 'safe zone' but UN peacekeepers found themselves powerless to stop Mladic's troops.

The BBC's Allan Little, who reported from Bosnia during the war, has sent this report from Srebrenica.
