The United Nations court sentenced six Bosnian Croat wartime leaders to lengthy prison sentences for the murder, rape and expulsion of Muslims from Bosnia during the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. The top defendant, Jadranko Prlic, was sentenced on Wednesday to 25 years in jail. He had been prime minister of the self-proclaimed Herceg-Bosna state that Croats carved out in central and southern Bosnia during the 1992-1995 ethnic conflict. The five others, including the interior minister and two chiefs of staff, received prison terms of 10 to 25 years. Al Jazeera's Emma Hayward reports.
