Bosnia and Herzegovina: Bosnian Croats lay candles in tribute to Slobodan Praljak

Bosnian Croats lit candles in honour of deceased convicted war criminal Slobodan Praljak, in Mostar, on Wednesday evening. The former Bosnian Croat military commander died after taking poison on hearing the final verdict of his appeal hearing at The Hague a day earlier. Large numbers of people left candles on the square in front of the Croatian Lodge «Herceg Stjepan Kosaca» in the western part... Еще of Mostar, where the majority are Croats. Praljak was appealing a conviction from 2013 for committing crimes against humanity in Mostar during the 1992-1995 war. The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia upheld the 20-year jail sentence. After learning his fate, Praljak drank a poisonous liquid to the confusion of members of the court. He died in hospital shortly afterwards.
