A Bosnian court has jailed a man for 10 years for taking part in the massacre of 8,000 people at Srebrenica in 1995.

Marko Boskic, 46, was found guilty of crimes against humanity after confessing his role in the killings. Prosecutors said in mitigation that he gave "important information" that will help in prosecuting others.

Boskic, a Bosnian Croat, was extradited from the US in April. He and seven other members of a Bosnian Serb commando squad "shot from automatic guns at several hundred blindfolded Muslim detainees", the court said.
