The trial of former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic has resumed at the United Nations tribunal in The Hague.

The proceedings were suspended on July 19 when Mladic fell ill, but a tribunal statement later said tests conducted at a Hague hospital showed Mladic was fit to stand trial and the case would resume.

Mladic is on trial for genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity for his role in Bosnia's 1992-95 war.

He denies wrongdoing.

Mladic, 70, has reportedly suffered two strokes during his years in hiding.

He was captured last year after 16 years on the run as an indicted fugitive.
