BBC News - Hague war court acquits Croat Generals Gotovina and Markac

A war crimes court in The Hague has overturned the convictions of two Croatian generals charged with atrocities against Serbs in the 1990s.

Appeals judges ordered the release of Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac.

In 2011 they were sentenced to 24 years and 18 years respectively over the killing of ethnic Serbs in an offensive to retake Croatia's Krajina region.

The men arrived in Zagreb later on Friday to a hero's welcome. But their release was condemned in Serbia.
