    The Bosnian War Crimes Court has sentenced a former Serb paramilitary commander to 45 years in prison.

    Vesslin Vlahovic was found guilty on more than 60 counts, including the murder, rape and torture of Croat and Bosnian Muslim civilians in Sarajevo in 1992.

    The atrocities were committed in the Serb held areas of Grbavica, Kovacici and Vraca in the city.
