FILE - A Thursday, July 11, 2013 photo from files showing former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic awaiting the start of his appeal at the courtroom of the U.N. Yugoslav war crimes tribunal (ICTY) in The Hague, Netherlands. Prosecutors called former Bosnian Serb political leader Radovan Karadzic a liar in closing remarks at his genocide trial, saying his denials of responsibility for atrocities committed on a massive scale while he was in charge lack any credibility. Prosecutor Alan Tieger said Karadzic, 69, should be imprisoned for life if found guilty. Karadzic says he is innocent of any wrongdoing and was unaware of the 1995 slaughter of more than 7,000 Muslim men and boys by Serb forces at Srebrenica, the worst massacre in Europe since World War II. (AP Photo/Michael Kooren, Pool, File)THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic insisted Wednesday that United Nations prosecutors do not have "a shred of evidence" linking him to atrocities throughout the Bosnian war, and accused them of putting the entire Serb people on trial.

At that time, Mecca was so small, pilgrims could sit at the cube-shaped Kaaba and look out at the serene desert mountains where the Prophet Muhammad once walked.
