THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Prosecutors are outlining their evidence of the alleged involvement of former Bosnian Serb military chief Gen. Ratko Mladic in Europe’s worst mass murder since World War II, the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

On the second day of the 70-year-old’s genocide trial Thursday, Yugoslav war crimes tribunal prosecutors will focus on the bloody climax of the 1992-95 Bosnian war, when Serb forces systematically executed some 8,000 Muslim men and boy in the U.N.-protected enclave in northeastern Bosnia and buried them in mass graves.

Mladic is accused of commanding Bosnian Serb troops who waged a campaign of murder and persecution to drive Muslims and Croats out of territory they considered part of Serbia throughout the conflict.

He has refused to enter pleas, but denies wrongdoing.
