Croatian Serb is jailed for 35 years

June 13, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

The war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslav federation convicted a wartime leader of Croatia's rebel Serbs of murder, torture and persecution and sentenced him to 35 years in prison.

Judges at the court in The Hague said Milan Martic was responsible for hundreds of killings in the Krajina region of southern Croatia. He also was convicted of ordering two days of cluster bombing of the Croatian capital, Zagreb, in May 1995 that killed at least seven civilians and injured more than 200.
