Former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic refused Tuesday to give evidence in support of one-time ally Radovan Karadzic, denouncing the U.N. war crimes tribunal as "satanic" and saying he did not want to incriminate himself.Mladic, the former general who headed separatist Bosnian Serb forces, and Karadzic, the political leader, are both accused of responsibility for the massacre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica near the end of Bosnia's 1992-95 war.Mladic had at first refused to appear before the court when, last year, Karadzic, 68, sought to summon him as a defense witness.Karadzic, seeking to distance himself from crimes investigators attribute to Mladic, then obtained a subpoena from judges, compelling the former general to appear.Proceedings were complete after less than two hours and Mladic was led out of the courtroom, exchanging nods with Karadzic.
