Carl Bildt, the former UN envoy to Bosnia after the war, told the BBC that members of Nato had shied away from any action that might have threatened the fragile post-war peace.

"I think there was a sort of collective reluctance by the Nato military commanders - and they weren't [just] American command, but British command as well," he said.

"The reason was they feared that if they moved... against Ratko Mladic, there was going to be significant political disturbances of some sort or another."
