The People vs. Milosevic

(CNN) -- Some of the bloodiest ethnic slaughter in history took place on his watch.

Now, Slobodan Milosevic, the former president of Yugoslavia, is a prisoner -- awaiting trial on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity.

Part 6: Shadows 

Prosecutors at the International War Crimes Tribunal charge that while he was head of state, Milosevic personally authorised mass murder in Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo.

The people of Yugoslavia, who forced Milosevic from power a year ago, are trying to rebuild after those years of bloodshed, corruption and suffering.

Whatever Milosevic's fate in The Hague, his removal from power one year ago hasn't solved his country's most profound problems.

As the new leaders of Serbia work to cure the cancer caused by more than a decade of war and corruption, they must confront old questions about ethnic tensions and how to keep history from repeating itself.

CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour reveals a bitter legacy in "The People vs. Milosevic."
