A French military court sentenced three Foreign Legionnaires to jail terms for the 1988 murder of a poacher on the hunting reserve of the Central African president, writes Julian Nundy in Paris.

The court handed down sentences of four years, of which one was suspended, to Major Paul Serves and three years with one suspended to Captain Dominique Cage. Both were charged with complicity. Corporal Patrick Daniels, found guilty of actually shooting the poacher, was given a suspended sentence of one year.
