A 34-year-old Bosnian Serb was sentenced by a German court to five years in jail for taking part in a massacre of Muslims during the war in Bosnia. Novislav Djajic was found guilty on 14 counts of acting as accomplice to murder and attempted murder. It was the first war crimes trial in Germany since the Nuremberg tribunal on Nazi war crimes more than 50 years ago.

Judge Ermin Briessmann recalled how Djajic, along with other Bosnian Serb troops, had lined up 15 Muslim men on a bridge over the river Drina near Foce in eastern Bosnia in April 1992 and shot 14 of them in revenge after their colleagues were killed by a mine. Reuters - Munich
