Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic is to begin his defence at a war crimes court in The Hague.
Mr Karadzic will defend himself against 10 charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity during the war in the 1990s.
He has denied the charges, including one related to a massacre by Bosnian Serb troops at Srebrenica in July 1995.
