Known as the “Butcher of Bosnia”, Mladic led forces during the massacre of Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica and the siege of Sarajevo.

The UN tribunal in The Hague convicted him on 10 of the 11 charges.

The 74 year-old Mladic was not in court when the sentence was read out having been removed for shouting at the judges.

They had rejected a request by his team to halt proceedings because of Mladic’s high blood pressure.

At the start of the session, he appeared relaxed, smiling and gesturing to the cameras.
Mladic has denied all the charges and his lawyer said he would appeal.

He had been on trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) since 2012. But the Mladic camp says it is already preparing its appeal.
