Serb war crimes suspect gives no plea to U.N. court

THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Croatian Serb wartime leader Goran Hadzic declined to enter a plea to war crimes charges over the 1991-95 Croatian conflict in his first appearance at the U.N.'s Yugoslavia tribunal Monday.

Hadzic, 52, was arrested in Serbia last week and transferred to The Hague Friday -- the last of Serbia's major war crimes suspects sought by the United Nations war crimes tribunal after the arrest in May of wartime Serb General Ratko Mladic.
