A minor incident occurred in front of the UN's court in The Hague after a man carrying the flag of Serbia approached the victims' families, who are awaiting the final judgement in the case of war crime suspect Radovan Karadzic.

After the crowd's reaction, the unknown man left the site, saying that he “will be back.”

Families of the victims of the 1992-95 Bosnian war gathered in The Hague on Wednesday to hear the final judgement pronouncement, set to take place at 2 p.m. in the Courtroom I of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals.

Karadzic, former Bosnian Serb leader, was sentenced to 40 years in prison in the first-instance verdict.

The man whose showing up in front of the court triggered reactions was also carrying banners that say ‘the Mechanism is a political court’ and ‘Free Karadzic and Mladic, no evidence for genocide’. After a brief quarrel with the families, he started running away.
