It's opening day of the war-crimes trial of Slobodan Milosevic, the only head of state ever indicted for war crimes while in office. The former Yugoslav and Serbian leader, who has elected to defend himself, wants to call Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair and former US President Bill Clinton to testify on his behalf.

We hear from The Hague, Belgrade and legal experts around the world about the potential consequences for the former head of state and the process of international justice.
