Serb war crimes suspect Mladic allowed to visit daughter's grave

Authorities in Serbia allowed the former Bosnian Serb general and war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic to visit his daughter's grave, the national RTS television reported Tuesday.

Mladic, 69, spent around 20 minutes at the grave of his daughter Ana in Belgrade under heavy guard, a court spokesman Bruno Vekaric told RTS.

Ana committed suicide at the age of 23 in 1994, using her father's trophy pistol. At the time Mladic was Serb commander in the 1992-95 Bosnian war, DPA reported.

Mladic, who was arrested in Serbia last week after nearly 16 years on the run, is expected to be extradited to The Hague by Friday to face trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).

He has been indicted on charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity in connection with the 1995 massacre of around 8,000 Muslims at Srebrenica and shelling and sniper attacks in Sarajevo.
