An exclusive interview with President Thein Sein about the rapid transformation of Myanmar – a revolution in progress.
Very important story from Belgrade: Serbia's parliament apologizes for the 1995 Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Moslem men and boys. I covered the Bosnia war. That massacre was the worst in Europe since World War Two. Top Bosnian Serbs were indicted for crimes against humanity and genocide afterward. Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic is now on trial at the Hague.
The lawmakers' apology is a major step towards healing the wounds of that war, and bringing Serbia one step closer to the European Union. But to fully end its former-pariah status, Serbia must arrest Ratko Mladic, the Bosnian Serb military commander during the war. He has been a fugitive for the past 14 years.
(CNN) - As the genocide trial of former Bosnian Serb Leader Radovan Karadzic resumed Monday in the Netherlands, a member of Bosnia-Herzegovina's rotating presidency said that, in effect, "ethnic cleansing" continues - 15 years after a brutal civil war there ended.
"The ethnic cleansing is there because people did not come back to their homes. Hundreds of thousands of them are around the world today and that's the problem," Haris Silajdzic, a Bosnian Muslim, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour.
"The ethnic divisions continued because people did not go back, were not allowed to go back, to their homes, including Srebrenica, where the genocide took place, and other places, too."
His comments came on the same day that Karadzic, who faces 11 charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide during the 1992-1995 Bosnian conflict, told an international tribunal in The Hague that the Serb cause is "just and holy."
