The Hague (AFP) - Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic on Wednesday said "all Serbs" were on trial as he began his closing statement to the Yugoslav war crimes court, where he is charged with some of the worst atrocities in Europe since World War II. Karadzic, 69, denies charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity for his role in the 1990s Balkan conflict, including the Srebrenica massacre."It is the Serb people that stand accused," Karadzic told judges at the Hague-based International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), implying the trial was biased against Serbs. Dressed in a crumpled charcoal suit, white shirt and maroon tie, Karadzic assumed the pose of a schoolmaster as he lectured prosecutors he accused of lying to the judges."I know the truth, the prosecution knows the truth, they are trying to delude the court," said Karadzic, his glasses perched on his nose and sporting his trademark bouffant hairdo. - 'Moral responsibility' - Karadzic is accused of being one of the masterminds of ethnic cleansing during Bosnia's brutal 1990s war that claimed more than 100,000 lives and uprooted 2.2 million others.
