FILE - A Thursday, July 11, 2013 photo from files showing former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic awaiting the start of his appeal at the courtroom of the U.N. Yugoslav war crimes tribunal (ICTY) in The Hague, Netherlands. Prosecutors called former Bosnian Serb political leader Radovan Karadzic a liar in closing remarks at his genocide trial, saying his denials of responsibility for atrocities committed on a massive scale while he was in charge lack any credibility. Prosecutor Alan Tieger said Karadzic, 69, should be imprisoned for life if found guilty. Karadzic says he is innocent of any wrongdoing and was unaware of the 1995 slaughter of more than 7,000 Muslim men and boys by Serb forces at Srebrenica, the worst massacre in Europe since World War II.
