Former Bosnian-Serb leader Radovan Karadzic has appealed his 40-year prison sentence for genocide and crimes against humanity.
Karadzic was jailed in March after a UN court convicted him of war crimes during the Bosnian war of 1992-1995, including the Srebrenica massacre in which 8,000 Muslim men and boys died.
In his appeal, he said his sentence should be overturned or he should be given a new trial as the court was biased against him.
