Croatia jails war crimes general
Source: BBC

A Croatian court has convicted a former general, Mirko Norac, of war crimes against Serbs.

He was sentenced to seven years in prison for failing to stop his soldiers killing and torturing Serbs in 1993.

A second general on trial, Rahim Ademi, was acquitted of the same charges. They were the highest-ranking officers to be tried in Croatia for such crimes.

The case was forwarded from The Hague and was seen as a test of Croatia's approach to wartime atrocities.
