Karadzic, 66, asked U.N. judges on Monday, June 11, 2012, to dismiss his war crimes case halfway through the trial. Prosecutors finished presenting evidence against Karadzic last month, and he is calling for dismissal of all or some charges before he presents his formal defense.

War criminal Radovan Karadzic

January 1, 1970

Bosnian Serb

wartime leader Radovan Karadzic saw himself as a defender of Serbs but

ended up one of the world's most wanted men, hiding from charges of

genocide behind a long white beard and a false identity. More than 20 years since

the start of Bosnia's 1992-95 war, Karadzic laid out his defense on Oct. 16 at the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague.
