Tribunal Drops Lesser Charges Against Mladic

From Times Wire Reports

The U.N. war crimes tribunal dropped all but the most serious charges against Bosnian Serb wartime commander Ratko Mladic, focusing its indictment on genocide and crimes against humanity.

The court has increased pressure on the Yugoslav government to arrest Mladic, and the amended indictment is aimed at speeding up proceedings.

The indictment had 36 counts but was reduced to 15, which include murder and deportations.
