Mladic trial hears plight of boy after family 'murdered'

Former Bosnian Serb military leader Ratko Mladic has gone on trial in the Hague.

He is accused of masterminding Europe's worst massacre since World War II.

For over 16 years he was one of the World's most wanted men.

He faces 11 charges including genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

Opening the trial, prosecuting counsel Dermot Groome focused on the plight of a 14-year-old boy whose father and uncle were among 150 men 'murdered' by Bosnian Serb forces in November 1992.
