THE HAGUE, Netherlands, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- The Hague war crimes tribunal Friday heard allegations that former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic ordered the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

The BBC reported Miroslav Deronjic, a former Bosnian Serb politician, said Karadzic told him days before the massacre that all local Muslims needed to be killed.

Deronjic was testifying at a pre-appeal hearing for General Radislav Krstic, who was partly responsible.

The tribunal has charged Karadzic with genocide over Srebrenica. Deronjic confessed to war crimes.

He said he was a civilian head of the Bratunac municipality near Srebrenica when he heard Karadzic give the order.

Besides Karadzic, the tribunal has charged his military commander, Ratko Mladic, with genocide at Srebrenica.

Both men remain at large.
