    FILE - In this Nov. 3, 2009 file photo former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic enters the courtroom of the U.N.'s Yugoslav war crimes tribunal (ICTY) in The Hague, Netherlands. The ICTY has acquitted Karadzic of one of the two genocide charges he faces at the halfway stage of his long-running trial on Thursday, June 28, 2012. Judges say prosecutors did not present enough evidence to support the genocide count covering mass killings, expulsions and persecution by Serb forces of Muslims and Croats from Bosnian towns early in the country's 1992-95 war.

    United Nations Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan speaks with the media after Security Council consultations at U.N. headquarters in New York in this June 7, 2012 file photo. Scarred by his failure to stop Rwanda's genocide nearly two decades ago, Annan faces another bloody debacle on his watch as his mediation efforts founder in Syria. Steeped in a culture of seeking consensus even when it looks unlikely, the soft-spoken former U.N. secretary-general is again at the point where his diplomatic efforts are being overtaken by mass killings rather than being seen as a step to peace.

    Bosnian youth, members of NGO "Izvor" tie white bandanas on passing citizens of Sarajevo, on Thursday, May 31, 2012. The "white bandana day" campaign invites people to put an end to genocide denial by marking 20 years since the day, in the beginning of Bosnia's inter-ethnic war 1992-95, when Bosnian Serb authorities issued an order for non-Muslim population of Western-Bosnian town of Prijedor to clearly mark their houses with white flags and to wear white bandanas in public. This was the second time in modern history that such a method of public segregation was implemented in Europe. The first case was recorded in 1939, in Nazi occupied Poland, when Polish Jews were ordered to be marked in similar fashion. (AP Photo/Amel Emric)
