Karadzic immunity appeal rejected

Breaking News

Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic has lost his appeal that war crimes charges against him be dropped.

He had appealed against a court ruling made in July that a trial would still be held despite his claim of immunity.

However, he was successful in appealing against the start date of his trial International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) at the Hague.

It was due to start on 21 October but has been postponed for five days as Mr Karadzic wanted more time to prepare.
