2:06 pm
government has insisted that there cannot be any war on the korean peninsula considering the kind of damage to south korea would suffer so there are divided opinions i think at the very least at the international level you can see south korea agreeing to stronger sanctions against kenya if anything what we have seen from killing else in scheme going to power is this very strong determination to continue with the program and it will probably not stop until it does reach that state of nuclear capability that enables it to attack u.s. continental america experts are saying that this might still take two to three years despite what killing is saying so and during this time what can anyone do. a copper seedings in the appeal case of six bosnian croat is convicted of war crimes have been suspended one of them. i am not

a war criminal what i have just thought was put some. dramatic scenes unfolding there in the hague one of them drinking a substance which is lawyer says is a poison the atrocities were committed between one nine hundred ninety two and one thousand nine hundred four in poznaƄ how to govern as the former yugoslavia broke apart they were found guilty of persecuting expelling and murdering muslims with the aim of creating an ethnically pure croatian state dennis hitch is deputy editor for the defaced project who's also associated with the balkan transitional justice project he joins us live. from sarajevo via skype thanks very much for being with us now i understand you have been following these proceedings what do you make of what's happened here. we have reporters that they will work just senior policeman and drink believe it also coming so. they will
2:08 pm
defend the. here is the first instance really well. here's the reason. that. that. was not a criminal jan substance. was the proceedings you order your order to be taken out. and now we're just waiting to see what will happen. so we heard the first. twenty five years in prison and we still have three defendants to go so we'll see how this. and in the case of slobodan probably at who was the the man that we just saw there taking what he said was a poison of what his lawyer said was was poison upon hearing his. his judgment does this not raise questions. about the. the security there is at the
2:09 pm
hague and whether the authorities could have done a more authority job of. perhaps of. checking to see if he'd had anything on him before he entered the courtroom well obviously are i'd be very concerned if there was no check and walk to see what was there i think they will need to see a way to see what actually happened when you last have. lawyers are you also asked her break it is lawyers and says that that used to continue we had almost an hour long break into the judge's going back in and after a medical check up everything turned out to be ok so it's possible you don't know how this started it's possible this week but more dangerous than that while the water will just have to wait and see if it turns out that he did or isn't that sure that there will be a very serious question as to how this was
2:10 pm
a large have indeed for the moment we'll leave it there at dennis speaking to assess there from sarajevo thanks for being with us. here. now this is the final appeal case the court is a ruling on but as david schaper reports now from most our divisions of the past still haunt ethnic groups there. the old bridge of must start built by the ottomans in the sixteenth century one of the priceless architectural casualties of the war in bosnia its wanton destruction is included in the list of indictments against the bosnian croat defendants in the last major case being heard in the international criminal tribunals for the former yugoslavia in the hague now painstakingly restored to its former glory it's become a unesco world heritage site and is visited by tens of thousands of tourists every year but then a rep for the reverse still marks a front line twenty two years after the war ended close by the city's

2:12 pm
a right to religion and places to pray this right must be counted but when it comes to school curricula i think many changes can be made so we can all study the same ones. in the wake of a war that killed one hundred thousand people the idea of two schools under one roof was devised by the organization for security and cooperation in europe to try and start reintegration but it's simply cementing the divisions what we have is a situation where you have multiple curricula you have multiple instructors separate administrations all divided along along ethnic lines and that frankly. and to me personally is is a long term threat to the security and stability of the country. as right kaamelott it's the butcher of bosnia completes the first week of the rest of his life in prisons one experience commentator of the genocide observed a bitter truth. he will at least have the satisfaction of knowing his mission in no
