Judge suspends Mladic trial after prosecutor 'errors'

The war crimes trial of ex-Bosnian Serb commander General Ratko Mladic has been delayed by a judge in The Hague due to "errors" by prosecutors in disclosing evidence to defence lawyers.

He says judges are still analysing the "scope and full impact" of the error.
