BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) -- A judicial official says war-crimes suspect Ratko Mladic has been brought strawberries and asked for Leo Tolstoy novels and a television set to be brought to his prison cell at Serbia's war crimes court.

The official who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation says Mladic has also asked to visit the Belgrade grave of his daughter Ana, who killed herself in 1994.

Employees who have seen Mladic following his arrest Thursday have described the former Bosnian Serb military commander as frail.
