      Bosnia court jails 2 Serbs for war crimes

      SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- A Sarajevo court has sentenced
      two Bosnian Serbs to a total of 38 years in jail for war crimes against
      Bosnian Muslims and Croats.

      The Bosnia-Herzegovina Court in Sarajevo on Friday ordered Marko Samardzija
      jailed for 26 years for crimes against humanity, including the torture and
      killing of Bosnian Muslims in 1992, Serbia's Fonet news agency reported.

      Samardzija was accused of participating in crimes in the area of the western
      Bosnian town of Kljuc during the 1992-95 ethnic war when he was a commander
      of Bosnian Serb units.

      In a separate trial, the Sarajevo court sentenced Nikola Kovacevic, 38, to
      12 years in prison for transporting non-Serbs to concentration camps in the
      Sanski Most area west of Banja Luka and torturing prisoners in 1992.

      At the time, Kovacevic was a member of Bosnian Serb forces operating in
      western Bosnia.
