Mladic Taken To Visit Daughter's Grave In Belgrade

Ratko Mladic after his arrest on May 26
Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic was taken under police guard today to visit the grave of his daughter at a Belgrade cemetery.

Serbia's deputy war crimes prosecutor, Bruno Vekaric, said Mladic was later returned to the detention cell in the court where he has been held since his arrest.

He had earlier asked to visit the grave of his daughter Anna, who committed suicide in 1994.

Mladic was arrested on May 26 in a village north of the capital, Belgrade, after more than 15 years on the run.

A three-judge panel is expected later today to rule on his appeal against his transfer to the UN war crimes tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, where he is wanted on charges of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
