Karadžić channels Piaf

In words that weirdly echo the signature song of the late chanteuse Édith Piaf (below), Radovan Karadžić (left) has told Reuters:

« Je ne regrette pas mon propre rôle ».

That's the French version of the article by Adam Tanner. In English, Karadžić said:

'I do not regret my own role.'

Karadžić spoke during an exclusive interview in The Hague cell where, as we've posted, he awaits trial. (photo credits here and here)
The 3d Amended Indictment, filed with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in February, alleges that Karadžić, former President of the breakaway Bosnian Serb region known as Republika Srpska, is responsible for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes committed during the brutal Balkans wars of the 1990s.
