Second Karadzic genocide charge filed

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) -- Prosecutors have filed a second genocide charge against Radovan Karadzic in an updated indictment.

The Yugoslav war crimes tribunal has released a prosecution motion asking judges to approve the new indictment that includes two genocide charges instead of the one in the former Bosnian Serb leader's current indictment.

According to the motion released Tuesday the two genocide counts refer to a deadly campaign of ethnic cleansing in Bosnia in 1992 and to the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

Karadzic was captured in July after 13 years on the run. He will be allowed to commenton the proposed new indictment before judges decide whether to allow the changes.

The new indictment reduces the number of alleged crime scenes in an attempt to speed up Karadzic's trial.
