THE HAGUE, Netherlands
The United Nations' Yugoslav war crimes tribunal says former Bosnian Serb army chief Gen. Ratko Mladic has to testify in the defense case of former political master Radovan Karadzic.
The subpoena sets up a tense courtroom reunion of two men accused of being the chief architects of Bosnian Serb atrocities in Bosnia's 1992-95 war that left some 100,000 people dead.
Karadzic requested a subpoena in April, saying Mladic — who also is on trial at the tribunal — refused to testify voluntarily.
Mladic is expected to be called as a witness in January.
Both men insist they are innocent of charges including genocide and crimes against humanity.
