Karadzic says he takes 'moral responsibility' for crimes committed, but denies ordering killings

The war crimes trial of former Bosnian Serb political leader Radovan Karadzic wrapped up last week. Karadzic is accused of being one of the masterminds of ethnic cleansing during Bosnia's Civil War. Karadzic has denied his involvement. A verdict is not expected until 2015. Larisa Kurtovic, a post-doctoral fellow in the department of anthropology at Cornell joins us to discuss the impact of the trial and reactions inside Bosnia.
