THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) – Ratko Mladic has been placed in U.N. custody at a detention unit to await trial for genocide, 16 years after he was charged by the court for the killing of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the worst massacre of civilians in Europe since World War II.

War Crimes Tribunal Spokeswoman Nerma Jelacic said Tuesday tribunal staff have handed Mladic his indictment and are explaining procedures to him, before he is placed in an isolation cell for the night.

Jelacic said isolation was standard for new arrivals at the prison.
