Once triumphant Bosnian Serb commander Mladic reduced to frail genocide defendant


SARAJEVO (Reuters) - In the 1990s he was the burly, brash general leading nationalist Bosnian Serbs towards a seemingly sweeping victory in Bosnia's war. Two decades later, he was reduced to an ailing old man awaiting judgment on genocide charges in a U.N. court.
